(Published: March 3, 2015)

Join David Ewing for a look at Nashville’s unique history through the Tennessee State Library and Archives’s (TSLA) historical materials and from his own historical research. In this free workshop, Ewing will discuss how to navigate the TSLA’s records to research Nashville history, and to locate information about your own Nashville ancestors.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. March 28.
