These court files, Probate and Civil cases, date back to the 1830s in our county. We had some of them online until the Florida Supreme Court ordered that only "Official" Official Records could be placed online by a Clerk's Office. This is a valuable part of our history that sits in dark boxes awaiting the light that the internet provides. We should be allowed a 72 year period like the Federal Census or something similar. Anything older should be allowed online. Jim Powell Jr, Ancient Records Coordinator for Alachua County, FL, Clerk of the Court
