The Midwest Tennessee Genealogical Society was organized November 12, 1968 and is based in Jackson, Madison County.  The society has graciously allowed us to share them online so the information becomes much more widely available as a resource for us all. The issues online begin with the very first one, published in April 1969 and continue until the Oct 1979 issue.

 

Published four times a year, content covers all West Tennessee counties (except Shelby):  Benton, Carroll, Chester, Crockett, Decatur, Dyer, Fayette, Gibson, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, Henderson, Henry, Lake, Lauderdale, Madison, McNairy, Obion, Tipton, and Weakley.  From time to time, other areas were also included such as Alcorn Co., Mississippi.

The quarterly journals themselves are physically hosted on the Internet Archive – which means you have several options for viewing them.  You can view them online in a book reader view, download the PDF file, and save in EPUB and Kindle book formats.

Check them out to see if there is anything of interest. We hope you find these a valuable resource in your genealogical searching!

    As a new member of Mid-West Tennessee Genealogical Society, I did not have the old journals. I am so glad that the Society agreed to share them and that TNGenWeb scanned and posted. We would love to have new members. Annual dues of $20 include quarterly journals. Also, join our Facebook page. Thanks.

    Thank you Katherine for clarifying the counties. I didn’t see an official “list” on the county website, so I was just looking through various issues to check which counties were included. I’m so glad you’re finding these helpful!
