Date: Tue, 30 Jul 2002 14:21:12 -0400
Whether your ancestors wore blue or gray in the American Civil War, the East
Tennessee Historical Society is offering a free workshop to help find your
familys Civil War story. The free class will be held 2 to 4 p.m. (Central
Time) on Saturday, August 24, 2002, in the Cherry Theatre on the campus of
Columbia State Community College in Columbia, Tennessee. The instructor, Dr.
George K. Schweitzer, is a popular, nationally known lecturer and author of
nineteen genealogy research books.
Participants will learn how to determine if an ancestor served in the Civil
War and how to locate records for both Confederate and Union veterans.
Participants do not need Tennessee ancestors to participate since the
information will be useful to researchers regardless of their ancestors
Why is the East Tennessee Historical Society bringing free genealogy
programs to Middle Tennessee? The classes are a celebration and introduction
to a new statewide initiative sponsored by ETHS to track down descendants of
Civil War soldiers who lived, fought, or died in the Volunteer State. The
new heritage program, Civil War Families of Tennessee, celebrates the
unique role of individuals in Tennessees Civil War story.
The workshop is co-sponsored locally by Maury County Archives. For
additional information about the free workshop contact the Maury County
Archives at 931-381-1565 or visit the ETHS web site at
