Upcoming Events and Some Information

January 26, 2017

Good Morning JGS members,

I just wanted to remind everyone that we are beginning another year with the JGS and events are starting to happen. With this said, I wanted to remind you of our Genealogy Day on Saturday, January 28 (this Saturday) at 9:30 am at the Washington County-Jonesborough Library, 200 Sabin Drive, Jonesborough, TN. The JGS will hold a research day at the library. Members will have a chance to research, work on projects, and help others. This is a good chance for society members to participate in our projects including work in the Genealogy Section of the Washington County- Jonesborough Library.

In addition, we are preparing to begin work on this year’s Jonesborough Record, The Jonesborough Genealogical Society’s Newsletter. We need submissions from members for this edition. If you have a story on genealogy research, your family, the area’s history, or want to place a query, please email it to me at, no later than February 15, 2017 to be included in this edition. Remember space is limited and once full, we will publish any additional material in another edition. We would like to get enough material to start doing this newsletter semi-annually.

Also, if you plan or want to go on the third Annual Tour of Historic Washington County, Tennessee on Saturday, March 25, 2017, please print your registration form and mail it and your payment to the JGS, 200 Sabin Drive, Jonesborough, TN 37659, as soon as possible. We have 30 seats and some are already filled!

In addition, members please go find out Jonesborough Genealogical Society Facebook and Like and Follow us. In addition, Members we have a MEMBERS ONLY Facebook Group that allows members to post research questions, upcoming events, and queries, as well as allow members to just get to know one another. Please take time to join this group.
