I am delighted to announce that we have a couple of Washington County updates to share today. First of all, the Washington County TNGenWeb site has been completely revamped by coordinators Margaret & Betty Jane. As with most of our sites using WordPress, you are able to sign up to the RSS feed to keep up with new additions and/or subscribe to receive them via email. Great job to Margaret & Betty for undertaking the redesign – it took several months to complete. They will continue to add information resources for you and please do let them know if you have contributions to make. http://www.tngenweb.org/washington.
Those of you familiar with Washington County likely already know about the Washington County Obituary Project. Started as a partnership between the Cemetery Survey Team of Northeast Tennessee and the Washington County TNGenWeb approximately two years ago, the project aims to provide as many obituaries for individuals of Washington County as possible. Currently, they have more than 1700 obituaries (out of 10,000 already collected!) posted on their old site, but are now in the process of moving to a new website. You can visit the new site at http://washingtoncountytnobituaries.wordpress.com.
Enjoy visiting the new sites and exploring what is available.
