History Branch to Host “On Southern Ground: Tennessee Land Records for Genealogists” with Charles Sherrill, State Librarian and Archivist

Join us Sunday, June 11 at 2:30 pm for a look at how Tennessee land records can provide context for genealogical research led by Charles A. Sherrill  (M.A., M.L.S.), State Librarian and Archivist of Tennessee, with responsibility for the state’s legal and historical records. A former director of the Cleveland Public Library, he has been active in genealogical research and publishing since he was a teenager. His publications include the NGS Guide to Research in Tennessee, two family genealogies, the two-volume Tennessee Convicts, and The Reconstructed 1810 Tennessee Census. Sherrill has been the editor of The Middle Tennessee Journal of History and Genealogy for 15 years and teaches an online genealogy course at Jackson State Community College.
