"This world-class facility will blend the necessity of historic preservation with the ever-increasing demand for digital access. I applaud Gov. Haslam and the entire General Assembly for making this a reality so we can better serve Tennesseans,” Tennessee State Secretary of State Tre Hargett said during the facility's ground breaking ceremony.
TSLA will be referenced frequently in this month’s blog posts. They have a wealth of information available to the genealogy researcher. Some of the information is online at https://sos.tn.gov/tsla, and some of it is just a phone call, email, chat or visit away. One resource that is still growing is the Genealogy Index Search. This index searches across many of the databases at the archives and identifies available records.
In addition, TSLA has partnered with Ancestry to provide Tennessee residents free access to a number of Tennessee specific databases. These databases can be accessed through the Tennessee Electronic Library (TEL).
