    I love the new set up of the site and in the past have found it frustrating to find items. Thank you, Melissa, for a wonderfully comprehensive visit to the archives. I will be following this presentation step by step with the website to find the treasures hiding in there for my ancestors of Bradley, Meigs and Rhea Counties! As always, you rock!

    This was a fantastic webinar for anyone who has Tennessee ancestors. I was totally unaware of this fantastic resource prior to viewing this presentation. I can’t wait to explore the website. The speaker was excellent and clearly explained how to utilize the Tennessee State Library and Archives website. Thank you so much!

    My great great grandmother was married in Tennessee and her daughter, my great grandmother was born there and it’s been very difficult to find any information on them. But now that I’ve looked at this webinar it’s give me a lot of good clues where to look for things.
