State workshop to help in tracing family history

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Folks interested in tracing their family history can get some advice at a free workshop being offered by the state.

The Tennessee State Library and Archives is having its third annual "Family History Day" event on Nov. 30. It is designed to introduce more people to genealogy.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. in the TSLA auditorium, which is located at 403 Seventh Ave. North, west of the state Capitol in downtown Nashville.

Participants will be given an overview of records that are available at TSLA and shown how to navigate the various databases.

Although the event is free, reservations are required because seating in the auditorium is limited. To make a reservation, call (615) 741-2764.
