Preserving The Past To Inspire The Future For Over 50 Years
The Watauga Association of Genealogists Northeast Tennessee was organized in 1971 and published the first Bulletin May 1972.The Bulletin is devoted to copies and abstracts of original source data relating to Northeast Tennessee and adjacent areas. The Association publishes the Bulletin semi-annually – April and October. In 2016 WAGS went to an all digital format and our Bulletin is available online for all members.
Genealogy Tips of the Week:
Often probate records and land deeds are overlooked in U.S. genealogy, but they might be what you need to solve your brick walls.
Findmypast is best known as the British Isles record giant, with millions of exclusive records from The National Archives (UK) and The British Library, as well as an extensive collection of parish and church records from across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. What a lot of folks don’t realize is that Findmypast has a free records portal, too. Here you can search over 830 million of their key collections (including 10 million Irish church records) without a paying subscription.
