I'm a free-lance historian who volunteers at the Historic Homestead Town Hall Museum in Homestead, FL. I've written 61 articles for my website, Historic South Dade ( and would love to collaborate with others who have ancestors who lived here to write future articles. There is a lot of research material posted on my website under the Resources tab. I have the Palms Memorial Cemetery index in Excel format, the obituary index in pdf format, an Excel spreadsheet of homesteading claims and section-township-range maps to locate those claims. I'm interested in the early settlers of this area and their connections to each other. I keep an eye out for items of interest to other contributors who have created memorials for people associated with this area and notify them of my finds. One person can't do it all and I try to help others hoping that they will return the favor.
