The Lakewood Ranch Genealogy Club meets on the first Monday of the month from November through April at the Lakewood Ranch Town Hall. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. and all are welcome. For additional information please contact Nancy Johnson with inquiries. Please write "LWR Genealogy" in the subject line).
On April 1st, member Susan Well wil present "Accessing Land Records Online." Every records office has an online presence. Those sites may give the basic information only – hours, address and contacts – or you may be able to access every document since the county was founded and print documents free from your home. Find out how to understand your county’s site and to succeed when only minimum data is available from your home.
