Florida Genealogy

  • City of Miami cemetery records
    I stumbled upon this cemetery book while looking for something else today. It’s a little hard to read, but it contains lists of names of lot owners. Lists vary in detail and may include columns with additional information like lot, block and deed numbers, remarks, price and month. Also includes diagrams that display blocks containing lots with names and dates.

American Woodmen Records

  • American Woodmen Insurance Ledger: Index
    Index to life insurance files of insured and beneficiaries 1901 to 1907. American Woodmen’s Life was founded in Denver, Colorado in 1901 as a Fraternal Benefit Society established to provide life insurance for the “un-insurable” Black Community. The register shows in chronological order the name of the insured, “camp and state” of residence, age, name of beneficiary or beneficiaries, and their relationship to the insured. States covered in this first ledger include Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indian Territory [Oklahoma], Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, South Carolina, Texas, and Washington, D.C. This register represents the first of 40 ledgers. The company went out of business in 1993.
