Manuscript Finding Aids and Indexes


The Manuscript Collections

Finding aids are the 'table of contents' to our manuscripts and records. See what we have on Florida politics, writers and naturalists, civil rights, state history, and much more.

Index to the East Florida Papers

One of our basic tools for finding documents in the Spanish colonial records of the late colonial period (1784-1821)

Index to the Florida Miscellaneous Manuscript Collection

Provides short abstracts and I.D. numbers for many of our small but historically significant collections

Index to the Goza-Mickler Newspaper Abstracts

Searchable abstracts to articles about Florida in American newspapers, 1762-1885. Use it in conjunction with the online Goza-Mickeler Collection

Index to the Florida Historical Map Collection

A guide to our historical maps. Get acquainted with our holdings, then view items online or at the Map and Imagery Library
