Michael Dean Pressley to Present Surname Database to JGS

April 16, 2014

The Jonesborough Genealogical Society will have a special program and dinner on Monday, May 5, 2014, at 4:30 pm at the Washington County- Jonesborough Library, 200 Sabin Drive, Jonesborough, Tennessee. Dinner will be at 4:30 pm and the program will be presented at 6 pm.

Michael Dean Pressley, a senior at EastTennesseeStateUniversity graduating in May with a degree in information technology, will give a presentation on his recently completed Surname Database. This database will be the basis of the Jonesborough Genealogical Society’s Surname Project. Pressley’s database is designed to create a searchable database and/or index of all surnames and names listed in the books and eventually the vertical files of the Washington County-Jonesborough Library Historical/ Genealogical Section.

Pressley is a native of Canton, North Carolina and graduate of PisgahHigh School. He will also be the first of his family to earn a degree from a four year college. Pressley will begin a job at CGI Federal in Columbia, South Carolina, after graduation.
