Collection Description

They have a relatively small family folder collection. Nevertheless, it is an important resource for settlers coming from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and northern Virginia  along the Great Valley Road into Tennessee, Kentucky, and North Carolina.[2] Their collections includes a file for local cemeteries, and local history file, regional history books, county courthouse records, family histories, Civil War records, censuses and census indexes. Emphasis is primarily on Tennessee and Virgina, and to a lesser degree on Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.[3]
