* * WPA Workers
During the Great Depression in the early 1900s, many Americans were given a "job" by the United States Government to support their family. One such "job" was transcribing early court, family, Bible, and cemetery records as well as other local records. Original versions were typed on onion skin paper with "x" number of carbon copies. Although the State Archives owns the vast majority of 'first' or typed copy, carbons have circulated for years but are now scattered. Often the typing is not the best and is difficult to read but these valuable records still constitute one of the best sources of information for Tennessee Counties. In many cases, these are all that remain of the original as many county records have been lost. WPA records are generally full text transcription: much larger in scope than an abstraction or summary.

Examples:

Deed for 72 acres of land from John Wright to Pumphrey Byrum lying in Cannon State of Tennessee baring date the 8th day of May 1836 ... [continues].

... Burrel Farles, an orphan boy about the age of nine years needs the protection of the court and proposes to have ... [as guardian] until he attains the age of twenty-one years and agrees on his part to learn him the occupation of farming and to take good care of him ... at end of the term, [Guardian will buy him] a good suit of jeans clothing and a fur hat and such other things as is suited to an apprentice ...

... Estate of John M. Bennitt ... ordered to divide the before mentioned lands as follows: [continues with heirs]

... bill of sale from James Higgins to John W. Surmar, for one negro boy by the name of George of yellow complection ...
