This work is an absolute gold mine for anyone who is researching the State of Tennessee. The compiler has gone to the Court Minutes to dig out all the gems of genealogical information. In many cases, this is the only record that exists to show birth dates, death, divorce, naturalization, and much more. Most of the court minutes have no index, or at best only a partial index, so it took a page-by-page reading to find this information. Included in Volume One are records from Blount, Davidson, Dickson, Fayette, Giles, Greene, Hardin, Haywood, Hickman, Humphreys, Lincoln, Putnam, Rutherford, Washi... View more info
