Volunteer Voices Statewide Digitization Project- Tennessee

Volunteer Voices is a state-wide collaborative effort among 100 different organizations and institutions in Tennessee documenting the state's rich history and culture. These organizations include the Tennessee archives, historical societies, libraries, museums, and schools: the University of Tennessee, Middle Tennessee State University, Tennessee State Library & Archives, University of Memphis, Memphis Public Library & Information Center, Brentwood Library, Vanderbilt University, East Tennessee Historical Society, C.M. McClung Historical Collection, Tennessee State University and others. You can browse the collection by topic, era, county, or institution. I found some interesting documents in the following areas: Family Life and Gender Relations;
Farming and Agriculture; Frontier Settlement and Migration; Immigrants and Immigration. But, there more. Lots more. Here's the link.
