The Tennessee State Library & Archives plays a crucial role for all of us that do research in the state. It truly is a state treasure! I know I’ve personally benefitted from their services, collections, and staff expertise and I am sure many of our TNGenWeb site visitors feel the same.
With this in mind, yours truly was honored when asked by TSLA to contribute a statement of support for their “Save Our Past, Build our Future” campaign to get a new building. In my statement, I wanted to convey how vital TSLA is for all that we do at TNGenWeb and all that you do as family historians and genealogy researchers. I’ve also personally benefitted and am so proud to be a loyal supporter of the library! I was truly tickled pink when for the photos, they brought out copies of the Koonce to Koonce newsletters. As my family surname, when I discovered these newsletters at the library years ago, they were the start of my passion for beginning my Koonce Surname Research Project.
If you agree that TSLA is truly invaluable, won’t you consider helping TSLA and reaching out to offer your support for the new building as well? Learn more in this recent story featuring State Librarian & Archivist Chuck Sherrill. Also, visit the TSLA Facebook page!
