In the summer of 2019, the Tennessee State Library and Archives held the Family History Summer Camp. Over the course of a week campers experienced an active, fun, and engaging day camp for boys and girls in Nashville, Tennessee. The campers explored history and genealogy while honing their teamwork and problem-solving skills. Check out our camp video above!
