Greek, Italian, Spanish, Minorcan & Turkish Colonists in Florida 1768

Olive Tree Genealogy has an original research project reconstructing names of colonists of Greek, Italian, Minorcan and Turkish origins to Florida in May 1768.

Eight ships sailed under the direction of Andrew Turnbull. Lucie Servole Myers has reconstructed the names of 431 passengers on board the 8 ships and allowed Olive Tree Genealogy to publish this.

The ships and names of passengers are organized in the following immigrant groups:
