Last year, the Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation that designated the month of July as Tennessee Genealogy Month. Various organizations and groups around the state are planning events to further promote genealogy. Our very own Mike Boniol, co-coordinator for the Cumberland County TNGenWeb site, will be aiding in the effort.
The Cumberland County Archives and Family Heritage Center is hosting an event on July 20th called Coming Home to Tennessee. Mike will be confirming documentation for early families of the county and explaining techniques to locate documentation. More details on the event can be found in the Crossville Chronicle newspaper.
Keep an eye out for similar events throughout the state!
