The Posterity Project - Follow Friday

A quick Follow Friday recommendation for those with Tennessee research interests - or those who love history and archives (pretty much covers all of us, no?).

Gordon Belt's (read his About Us entry to be wowed by his credentials) The Posterity Project is one of my must reads. I love his posts referring to my East Tennessee locales of interest, such as when he wrote about the Archives of Appalachia at East Tennessee State University recently.

I love his posts about current issues facing archives and archivists.

I love his posts about the Civil War and the resources available to explore its history and effects.

I could go on, but you get the point. Check it out. It's a fabulous resource and always a great read.


  1. Susan, thanks so much for the recommendation. Very interesting site, indeed. While you are right about those impressive credentials in the "About Us" page, I found the "About this Site" page informative, too--and inspiring, especially when Gordon Belt explains the source for the site's name, "The Posterity Project" (from George Washington).

    Of course, I'm always up for more info on East Tennessee!

  2. Thanks for the tip, Susan - I'm a follower now! East Tennessee is where so many of my major brick walls are from....
