The primary entry point for on line genealogical research for Madison County is located on the TNGenWeb at www.tngenweb.org/madison. The Tennessee Records Repository has been established as an additional resource in support of the Madison County TNGenWeb. The Co. TN genealogical records held here are for use by the general public. These records have been donated to TNGenNet Inc. for permanent online free-access.
We, the volunteers of the TNGenWeb Project, are committed to maintaining and enhancing this FREE online genealogy project for the benefit of the public good. All Tennessee counties will have an area for you to post queries and to access county information. Additionally, we will offer related Tennessee historical information and also, some historical information relative to adjoining states.
We are a group of volunteers working together to provide free genealogy websites for genealogical research in every county and every state of the United States. This Project is non-commercial and fully committed to free genealogy access for everyone. Organization is by county and state, and this website provides you with links to all the state genealogy websites which, in turn, provide gateways to the counties. The USGenWeb Project also sponsors important Special Projects at the national level and this website provides an entry point to all of those pages, as well.
The WorldGenWeb Project is divided into 11 World Regions. Each region is divided up by countries and each country is divided into individual provinces, states, or counties (terms vary depending on administrative divisions).
