We're looking for DATA for this site!!!
If you are interested in adding your families' information this website, EMAIL ME. I'll be happy to help your families' obituaries, news items and other historical data find a home here at Florida Genealogy Trails, where it will remain free for all to view.
I REGRET THAT I AM UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
ALL DATA IS ADDED TO THE SITE AS I COME ACROSS IT, SO IF IT IS NOT HERE YET, PLEASE KEEP CHECKING BACK.

Pasco County was created on June 2, 1887, from the southern third of Hernando County. The same legislation also created Citrus Country from the northern third of Hernando County.
The earliest towns were Anclote, Blanton, Dade City, Earnestville, Fort Dade, Macon (Trilby), Lacoochee and San Antonio.
Pasco County earned its name from Samuel Pasco (6/28/1834-3/13/1917), a United States Senator who served two terms in Florida from 1887-1893 and 1893-1899. For all those who wish to visit his grave, he is buried in the Roseland Cemetery in Monticello.
Here are some good places to start your genealogical research:
Pasco County Vital Statistics (obtaining birth and death records)
Pasco County Libraries (Dade City branch has a microfiche station)
Pasco County Records Center (both East and West)
Pasco County Courthouses, located in Dade City and New Port Richey (obtaining copies of marriage certificates)
Pasco County Tax Collecter (viewing tax records)
Pasco County Property Appraiser (great way to see if your ancestor's house is still standing)
