NASHVILLE, TN — Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned genealogist, Family History Day has something for everyone. This year’s featured presentation is Welcome Home: Unlocking History Through the Places We Live, led by Librarian Trent Hanner.
As part of Hanner’s presentation, attendees will learn how to use the Library and Archives’ extensive collections to research the history of their home. Discover the stories of your community by researching the places where we live and work, whether your family has lived in Tennessee for generations or you’re new to the area.
Following the presentation, visitors will be able to trace their family history in the Library and Archives Reading Room, where staff and volunteers will be on hand to support them. Attendees are encouraged to bring whatever information they have, including names, dates, and places.
The Tennessee State Museum is located across the street from the Library and Archives at 1001 Rep. John Lewis Way North. Parking is available for guests in the Library and Archives garage on Jackson Street/Junior Gilliam Way
