    Hello Tim,

    My name is Christine Sullivan, and I am a undergraduate history major who finally (finally!!!) finished her capstone thesis project. I’ve grown up in Jacksonville all my life, and couldn’t think of a better area to focus so much of my time on. I just wanted to leave you a little blurb to thank you for this site and your years of research-they were invaluable to my own work, and your passion for Jacksonville history is such an inspiration to me. I love the way you present stories and histories on this page, it’s such a unique way of connecting the past that everyone’s forgotten about to today.
