TN State Library & Archives created an index to primary petitioners' names, locations, and subjects. That index is at https://sos.tn.gov/tsla/guides/tennessee-legislative-petitions


01/30/2022: We have made a few changes to the transcription fields as we've reviewed the wonderful work our volunteers have done! Thank you!


Please type what you see. If you need to explain something, use the Transcriber's Comments field for individual names, or use the Notes and Questions blocks at the bottom of a page to explain something in the text block.
