Our Genealogy Helper for Jacksonville Beach ...

We have a couple of goals for our Gazetteer:

  • That it be a tool that can help us with planning our trips.
  • That it also helps us to understand the community in which our ancestors lived, the community that was part of their daily lives.

By learning about Jacksonville Beach (and the surrounding area) during the time that our ancestors lived, we hope to have a better understanding of both their community and its relationship to their lifes. We hope that this tool helps to give us an insight into their world.

As we add data and organize our Gazetteer to help with our family research, we will be adding to this, our Genealogical Helper for Jacksonville Beach. While we don't have information that is specific to any given person or family, we intend to expand our understanding about where and how people lived.

When searching records, keep in mind that names and their spelling can change over time. Our sources include documents like maps, railroad schedules, Travel, Express and Shipping Guides. Many of these documents date from the 1800's and it's common to find spelling differences.

Although we can't give a definitive list, hopefully the following will give you a feel for the variations that might have occurred.

Over the years, Jacksonville Beach had several name changes:

  • Before changing to Pablo Beach, it was named Ruby.
  • Jacksonville Beach was originally named Ruby
  • A typical abbreviation for Jacksonville Beach: Jacksonville Bch.

A Few Details for Jacksonville Beach ...

While it's still very early in our research, we have found that:

Neighboring Counties ...

When searching for family records, we have frequently made the mistake of not checking the neighboring counties.

For example, we have great-grandparents who lived in the southeast corner of their home county. During their lives, most doctors were in the next county to the east. Almost all of the nearby churches and cemeteries were in the county to the south.

So when searching for records, we had our best success by looking in neighboring counties instead of the county in which they lived:  their home county contained property and probate records; the county to the east contained birth and death records; the county to the south contained their burial records. If we hadn't included the neighboring counties, we would have missed many valuable sources of information.

If you're in a similar situation, we hope that the following information helps.

Jacksonville Beach is located in Duval County.

To see how the shape of Florida's counties have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
