New Project: Family Tree of Levy County, Fl

I have started a online tree that is an attempt to organize the different families of Levy Co. Florida into a database.  It is always in the works; all information, sources and knowledge are included and listed.  Currently the database consists of all individuals listed on the 1850 Federal Census for Levy County, Florida.  Now, the task to entering all individuals, families, marriages and other events that makes up a family tree forward too and including the1930 Federal Census , need to be researched and entered into the data base.

Should you wish to help in this undertaking, please contact me. tom@twparker.com  I will be happy to send you a link to the tree and provide the credentials to edit/add individuals of the database.
