The Tennessee Genealogical Society is a federally recognized nonprofit, tax-exempt, educational organization, staffed and managed by unpaid volunteers. Membership is open to all genealogical researchers or others with an interest in genealogy.
Germantown Library System remains closed until further notice, as is the Tennessee Genealogical Society Center. All currently scheduled programs are virtual only.
We will update this site as new information becomes available.
Dear Member/Friend of the Tennessee Genealogical Society:
Since the closing of our Center on March 13, 2020, TNGS has been working ceaselessly to ensure that our members and friends continue to receive ongoing genealogical opportunities for learning. In order to do this, we have created, advanced, and continue to update our virtual offerings.
Recorded sessions from well-known genealogists are coupled with online live sessions with our own distinguished and familiar presenters. These sessions will be posted on our website when they become available, and information on each will be sent to our email list. (Please check this website to keep current on our newest offerings.)
We also want to thank each of you for your understanding and encouragement as we work through the characteristic technical ‘glitches’ that sometimes occur when dealing with computer-generated services. Our Program Committee and Media Committee are working tirelessly to ensure the success of each session.
We appreciate your membership, your support, and your unceasing desire to attend our workshops in the past, and now our virtual sessions. If you have not yet joined TNGS, now would be a great time to do so! Just go to the website listed above and click on the tab that says “Join or Renew.” You may also mail in a check to the address shown on our website.
Sending our best wishes to each of you,
The Board of Directors, Tennessee Genealogical Society
