We have been reacquainted with many old friends and made new ones. One of the most rewarding aspects of the blog is that we have been able to share information with so many people who have a genuine interest in Duval County history. The sharing has gone both ways; I have been blessed to have many people share their photos, genealogies, family histories, etc. Please keep them coming.

Again, thanks to all of you for your support. Keep in mind that the aim of the blog--as stated in our first post--is the publication of a book on the nineteenth century history of Duval County. The goal is to achieve that before our second anniversary. 

In Christ,
Alfredo
