On this page are listed present and past projects that MTGS members have undertaken.
MTGS members are participating in the indexing of Tennessee county marriage records through the FamilySearch.org web site, so that the records can become searchable online. Using the FamilySearch Indexing software, you can download small 'batches' of images to index, right from the comfort of your own PC.
Learn how you can participate in this project by visiting the Indexing Projects page at FamilySearch.
FamilySearch Indexing also has other groups of records that you can help index. Take a look and find more projects that interest you!
In 2012, MTGS members participated in the nation-wide indexing of Immigration and Naturalization records, and also of the 1940 Census, through the FamilySearch.org web site. The complete census index, as well as the census itself, can be accessed free of charge on FamilySearch's 1940 census page.
Family Bible DVD
MTGS began a project in 2006 to digitally
photograph family Bible records, or copies thereof, from all
counties in Middle Tennessee. We established an outreach program of
visiting outlying county archives/libraries to make it easier for
people to bring their Bibles to us. An every-name index was prepared
for the nearly 250 Bibles listed, and a DVD was created in 2008.
