Saturday, January 22nd at 9:30 am in the Jonesborough Visitors Center, 117 Boone St., Jonesborough, Billie R. McNamara will present a program entitled “TNGenWeb Project: Still Vital After 25 Years”, which will focus on the rejuvenation efforts and education focus of TNGenWeb as they compete with the large Web sites — how they believe they can fill a niche that is desperately needed even today.  She will introduce the collaboration with TSLA to index newspapers and other documents to make the data and images available free, in perpetuity.

Bilie was the founding Coordinator of the TNGenWeb Project in 1996 and is serving in that role again with the goal of revitalizing TNGenWeb and restoring its premier position as a resource for researchers.
