FLORIDA COUNTIES -  Dates of Creation

Florida Department of Transportation -- County Maps:  These maps sell for $1.30 each; most counties have just one map, but a few have two.  The maps shows three features that genealogy researchers like that are not on most other maps:  (1) the townships, ranges, and sections, if you are investigating land deeds, and some land grants as well; (2) many of the rural churches and cemeteries, and (3) many of the rural towns, subdivisions, and state management areas by name, but not all.  These maps ARE NOT genealogically useful for URBAN areas.  There are 67 counties but who needs all the counties?   There are legends, but no indices on the maps; you need to search the map for a particular name or place.  The above web site gives you the details to acquire your own county maps.
