About Jim

I have been addicted to genealogy for more than 35 years.  My ancestral roots are deep in Tennessee where I live, so thankfully I don’t have to go far to find a wealth of information for my research.  A great place to conduct genealogical research in Tennessee is the Tennessee State Library and Archives.

I am passionate about making records more accessible to genealogy researchers.  Since 1999 I have maintained the Stewart County Genealogy website for TNGenWeb – a site which I have attempted to make a ‘virtual courthouse’ for those not fortunate like I am to live near the original records.

I volunteer for the Stewart County Archives and have, for several years, extracted records from that county and published books for sale through the Archives, as a way of helping the Archives raise operating funds and of course to make the records more accessible to researchers.

  1. I recently came across your blog of Perry McCoy (or Tucker!) I have been searching that line of my genealogy recently. Perry is my 3x great grandfather. Thank you so much for your work on Stewart County. My grandmother grew up there and left so much unsaid before she passed.
