SaturdayJan 21 2017Field Trip with Mid-Tenn Genealogical Society to TSLA
If you love history and genealogy, or want to see the treasure trove of physical data that the Tennessee State Library & Archives (TSLA) has then please join us for a "field trip" downtown to the TSLA building, next to the Tennessee Supreme Court building.
If you are a history nut or book worm, you should find plenty to engage with. TSLA has audio, video, and text records of legislative sessions going back 200+ years.
I have reached out to the organizer of the Middle Tennessee Genealogical Society (MTGS) and this will be one of their regular show-and-tell meetings open to the general public. This is a mixer event, and there won't be any SLGDN business, but feel free to bring a personal historical artifact and participate in the meeting's agenda for the afternoon.
The MTGS is a nonprofit org, but many state employees are members of this organization due to the nature of the work they do with family and state history.
This is also a great opportunity for anyone interested in making connections at the state, who wants to work on data initiatives with the State Library (which has a lot of programs under its vast umbrella) to come out and meet people and begin building those relationships.
