TRAILS is an online database available through the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative. Its primary use for genealogists is that it contains an index to obituaries published in the Tampa Tribune and its predecessors from 1895 to about 1987. It also contains entries for newspaper and magazine articles dealing with Tampa Bay and Florida history. Each entry contains date and page references which can then be used to locate the original article or obituary on microfilm. Detailed information can be found at the following link:
