The Genealogical Society of Greater Miami, Inc.


In 1984 the Society’s library was donated to and merged with the Miami-Dade Public Library Genealogical Department in order to allow for greater availability to researchers and to provide for proper care and maintenance for the collection. All exchange materials from other societies as well as books donated to the society for review in the HERITAGE have been placed in the library, located at 101 W. Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33130

The website (with an online catalog) for the library is: Miami-Dade Public Library System

Telephone Contact: 305-375-2665

The library has a very extensive collection of reference material and indexes created by local genealogists.

There is an obituary/death notice index that covers all the newspapers from earliest times of Miami and Dade County.  The genealogy department staff will check the index for you and mail you a copy for $5 if one is found.
