The Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) gets about 10,000 visits to its offices in Nashville every year – plus millions more on TSLA’s section of the Secretary of State’s web site. Most of those visitors are genealogists.
TSLA houses the collections of some of the state’s well-known genealogists of the past. When these researchers donate their files to TSLA, they become available for others to mine for facts and details about Tennessee families.
|If someone in your family has left behind a mass of family folders, consider donating them to TSLA where they can benefit not only your family, but others as well.|

We also invite you to visit us at our location next door to the State Capitol at 403 Seventh Avenue North in Nashville from Tuesday – Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. If you cannot make it Nashville, or if you’re doing research on a holiday like July 4th, you can visit us online at www.tn.gov/tsla. You can also contact our Public Services staff by email at email@example.com.
The State Library and Archives is a division of the Tennessee Department of State and Tre Hargett, Secretary of State.
