The Middle Tennessee Genealogical Society, Inc. is a non-profit genealogical organization serving the forty counties of Middle Tennessee. Since our first meeting in 1987, we have hosted two National Genealogical Society conferences and numerous one-day seminars.

Our journal, The Middle Tennessee Journal of Genealogy & History, is an award-winning quarterly with articles of genealogical and historical interest. Little-known Tennessee records are published and indexed, along with family genealogies, Bible records and material submitted by members. Book reviews are published January, April, July and October.

We also host regular bi-monthly meetings, which are held in Nashville, Tennessee, on the third Saturday of January, March, May, July, and September.  The meetings take place at the Tennessee State Library and Archives, 1001 Rep. John Lewis Way N, Nashville, TN.  

Our November meeting is an all-day seminar featuring local and nationally-known genealogical lecturers.

We also sponsor genealogy workshops, and our members conduct genealogy classes in the Mid-State area.

Our past projects have included a Family Bible project in which we digitized nearly 250 family Bibles and made the images available on a DVD to members and the general public.  Our members also participate in indexing genealogical records for public access, through a partnership with FamilySearch.

Our newsletter, The Messenger, is published bi-monthly (January, March, May, July, September, November) and contains announcements of area events and helpful tidbits for genealogical research.

We publish, on our web site, announcements of family reunions in the area.  If you would like us to announce your family reunion, please contact our webmaster.

This and much more is in store for MTGS members and fellow researchers.
