Hunting for Ancestors Instead of Bargains on Thanksgiving Weekend

People who need a break from holiday shopping Thanksgiving weekend are encouraged to attend the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) “Family History Day” on Saturday, November 30. The third annual event, which is designed to introduce more people to genealogy, will include a free workshop on how to get started in researching family history.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. in the TSLA auditorium, which is located at 403 Seventh Avenue North, directly west of the State Capitol in downtown Nashville. Trent Hanner, a reference librarian at TSLA, will provide an overview of records that are available at TSLA and how to navigate through the various databases.

Although the event is free, reservations are required because seating in the auditorium is limited. To make a reservation, call (615) 741-2764 or e-mail workshop.tsla@tn.gov.

Please note that parking in front of the TSLA building is limited due to construction, however, there is plenty of additional parking behind the building.

The State Library and Archives is a division of the Tennessee Department of State and Tre Hargett, Secretary of State.
