-- Tennessee is Now Available in the Research in the States Series

At the recent 2009 Family History Conference in Raleigh, North
Carolina, NGS released the 38-page Research in the States for
Tennessee
, which has been revised and updated by Chuck Sherrill.

The following states are available from the National Genealogical
Society, Research in the States Series at the NGS website:

Each publication is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches, slightly larger than our previous Research in the States publications. The average length is 42 pages, but it varies by state. These publications are available in print for $14.50 for NGS members and $17.50 for non-members. The price includes shipping.

Alternatively, each book can be purchased as a PDF file, an "e-book" that you can download from the NGS web site and then either read on your computer or print. E-books are $8 for NGS members and $10 for non-members. Both the print and PDF version can be found on the NGS website:

Click on Store, and you will find both the print and PDF versions of Research in the States.

Each publication includes a section on archives, libraries, societies, and other research facilities in the respective state, as well as a discussion of the major family history resources available, such as maps, cemetery records, census, city directories, newspapers, military records, tax records and vital records. In addition, for each state you will find a discussion of which records are available at the local, county, and state level.

NGS plans to add a few new states each year, so check the NGS website periodically for new releases at:
