Friends of Metro Archives
The Friends of Metro Archives website was designed to be a comprehensive guide for historical and genealogical research for Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee. The site contains many indexes and abstracts of records housed at the Metro Nashville Archives. These records were compiled into databases, through the efforts of staff and volunteers. Indexes include those to marriage records, birth and death records, will books, and military records. Among the records that have been abstracted are court minute books, guardian minute books, cemetery records and school annual reports. There are historical essays published on the site on topics ranging from the first bridge across the Cumberland River, a history of the evolution of the Nashville Public Square to a Nashville Christmas tradition, Spice Round. Several historical publications, now in the public domain, can be read on the site. There are links to other sites and applications that will assist a researcher of Davidson County history or people. Check often for updates to the site.
