It's a magazine all about the history and genealogy of the East Tennessee region, in publication since 1984.

Here's some specs about what we cover:
  • Area? The East Tennessee counties listed on our home page.
  • Time periods? Prehistoric to early 20th century.
  • Particular emphasis? Early settlement and statehood, Watauga era, NC land grants, Revolution and Revolutionary soldiers, artifacts, etc.
  • Topics? Anything genealogy- or history-related. Primary sources, original research, meticulously-documented research. (We don't publish maybes, what-ifs, and supposition - in fact, we sneer at that.)
