This blog is being introduced as a way of sharing what is going on in the genealogy department at the Central Brevard Library in Cocoa, Florida and the wider genealogical community in our area. Information will be posted on upcoming classes, lectures, speakers and special events. Since genealogy and history go hand in hand I will also be posting items related to the rich history of our area. This may include stories about interesting individuals, events and places. At least initially, several of the topics covered will be the result of frequent questions by library patrons on the same subject, such as the 1934 murder of Cocoa's Ethel Allen, and while we cannot post all our historical documents on a particular topic it will give the reader an idea of what is available at the library. Individuals may also contact me about posting information on events or topics they feel would be of interest to the readers of this blog.
