The Tennessee Genealogical Society is always eager to expand the collection at the Germantown Regional History and Genealogy Center. You can help. The librarian maintains a list of books that would complement the collection. When you adopt one of these books, it will be placed on the shelf with a bookplate showing your name as the donor.

You can also adopt a book in someone else's name. Do you have a relative or friend you would like to honor? Has someone given you exceptional help with your research? This is a great way to recognize those special people.

If someone has already adopted the book that you want, then our acquisitions committee will purchase another book of equal or greater value, and notify you of the change.

The table below shows the current list of books we would like to donate to the Germantown Regional History and Genealogy Center:
