Tennessee Family History Research presented by Maureen Brady

Maureen Brady will be presenting “Tennessee Family History Research.” Tennessee was one of the first states established after the American Revolution, and it provides a rich body of historical records. This presentation will offer a brief overview of Tennessee history and how that affects the availability of the records, online resources for Tennessee research and an overview of repositories and archives.

Her programs and workshops cover Chicago area, the trans-Allegheny U.S., Canada, Quebec, Irish and Swedish research and using Family Search® and Family History Centers.  She is the co-director and trainer for the Crystal Lake (IL) Family History Center sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
