      Do you have Tennessee ancestors? If you do, you'll want to check out the
      free guide to Tennessee ancestors available at FamilySearch.org.
      In this guide, you will find a series of research articles packed with
      helpful ideas for tracing ancestors in all 95 Tennessee counties! There are
      articles on extinct jurisdictions, such as the State of Franklin, and tips
      on what to do if the courthouse burned where your ancestor lived.

      You will find information about tracing American Indian tribes that once
      inhabited the area, African Americans in the periods both during and after
      slavery, discover the latest finds about Melungeons, and learn useful tips
      about using the genealogical collections at the Tennessee State Library and
      Archives in Nashville.

      You can also read articles that will help you retrace your ancestors'
      footsteps as they traveled down the Natchez Trace from Nashville, Tennessee
      to Natchez Mississippi, or the Wilderness Road as it cut through the
      Appalachian Mountains, as well as determine which Civil War regiments were
      recruited in the counties where your ancestors lived. Did you know whiskey
      making, blacksmith work,and flour were the top manufactured products in the
      area in 1820?

      FamilySearch has digitized most Tennessee county will books. Find details on
      the specific county pages. You can even hear locals telling you how to
      properly pronounce the name of the county your ancestor made his or her
