Tennessee AHGP
Part of the American History and Genealogy Project

Welcome to Tennessee!  The American History & Genealogy Project is an unincorporated not-for-profit network of independent websites devoted to history and genealogy, and covering North American countries and territories.  This website contains abstracts and transcriptions of original records, historical photographs, and links to records and resources.  My name is Donna Sims Conner and I am pleased to be the State Coordinator for Tennessee.  If you have questions or need assistance, I would be happy to help.  You can email me at [email protected].  Thank you for visiting! 

The AHGP relies on volunteers to grow and maintain our websites.  There are many state and county sites that need coordinators.  We also have positions for special projects including transcriber, editor, photographer and more.  You can also submit genealogical or historical data for any of our sites.  Visit our About page to learn more about how you can help.  We appreciate your contributions!

Tennessee is in the southeastern part of the United States. It extends from the Smoky Mountains on the east to the Mississippi river on the west. It is much larger in this direction than from north to south. If one looks at it on the map, its shape makes him think of a little boy's coasting sled.

To the north of Tennessee lies Kentucky with its blue-grass pastures and its fine horses and cattle. It was the "Dark and Bloody Ground'' settled by Daniel Boone. East of Cumberland Gap, the northern border of Tennessee touches Virginia. Many Tennesseans came from the Old Dominion, as Virginia is often called.

Beyond the great mountains on the east lies North Carolina, the mother State of Tennessee. She is sometimes called the Old North State. From this State Tennessee received her government, her laws, and her civilization. It was from North Carolina that many of her people came, and for many years the land that is now Tennessee formed a part of that State.

On the south lie the three sister States of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, white with fields of cotton. Each was the home of Indian tribes. From the western border of our State we cross the great Mississippi River into Arkansas and Missouri, which have been largely settled by people from Tennessee.
