On Saturday, March 20th, at 9:30 am, the Jonesborough Genealogical Society will host its monthly genealogy day at the Jonesborough Visitors Center, 117 Boone Street, Jonesborough. Those attending will be required to have their temperature checked, wear a mask and sit 6 feet apart (socially distanced). Limited seating is available in person. The program will consist of a Zoom program entitled, “Researching Your Cherokee Roots,” by Jason Terrell, a well known Cherokee genealogist. A Zoom link will be emailed to members of the society in advance of the meeting. Jason Terrell is an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. He has been doing genealogical research on Native American families, with an emphasis on Southeastern tribes, for over 25 years. He served for five years as the Vice Chairman for the Cherokee Phoenix, the tribal newspaper of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, and for two years as editor of Ansearchin’ News, the quarterly magazine of the Tennessee Genealogical Society. He is also a member of the Trail of Tears Association which is dedicated to preserving the history of the forced removal of the Cherokee and other tribes from the southeast during the 1830s.
