The University of South Florida has launched a new online exhibit that examines Florida’s first European settlements, providing the public unprecedented insight into the daily lives of early St. Augustine residents.
The new exhibit is a part of USF’s La Florida: The Interactive Digital Archives of the Americas. Titled “Lost Voices,” the project makes St. Augustine’s diocesan archives digitally accessible for the first time to a global audience.
The project is being launched in two phases. The first, launched Monday, includes more than 4,000 pages of ecclesiastical records from America’s first parish. Phase II will be published later this year.
