Open to Visitors–on a hot Florida day

This blog has languished a bit because I have been been busy moving to another location in St Augustine, but we all rallied and turned out at the cemetery to welcome visitors on our usual 3rd Saturday opening.

Many thanks to Tom Caswell, our Research Committee chair and a librarian at the University of Florida, for maintaining this valuable archive.  Now folks have got to start using it! 

And remember, we are always looking for information to add to it.
