arleneeaklestnblog1My friend, Arlene Eakle launched a new blog today. She’s calling it Arlene Eakle’s Tennessee Genealogy Blog. Why launch today? According to Arlene, this being March 17, she’s launching “… in observance of the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals which launched the legal occupation of Tennessee in 1775.” Her blog today is a detailed examination of this “pivotal event in our genealogy past.”

“The 17th of Mar 1775 and all the days leading up to it and the aftermath of it created one of the most pivotal events in the history of Tennessee and Kentucky. And it changed forever the developing history of the United States of America. Keep in mind–as Tennessee goes, so goes the rest of the country.”

Arlene already has two blogs, one where she writes on genealogy in general and another titled Arlene Eakle’s Virginia Genealogy Blog. Arlene likes to analyze genealogical problems. She likes to blog about how to use records, and occasionally where to find them. If you’ve got Tennessee ancestry, you’ll want to follow her new Tennessee Genealogy blog.
