Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
This county is available for adoption.
A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a basic webpage is required.
We're looking for folks who share our desire to put data online and are
interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it.
If you are interested joining our group as County Host for this website, or any of our websites, view our
Volunteer Information page.
In the meantime, we'd be very happy to accept any data you'd care
to contribute and would like to see displayed on this site. We're looking for "raw data" - the birth/death/marriage
records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other
military data. In short, we'd like to display all the items you used to put together your family tree (rather than
the tree itself).
Email your transcribed data to me

Rutherford County was formed in 1803, from Davidson, White, &
Williamson Counties. The county seat is Murfreesboro. The county was named after Maj. Gen. Griffith Rutherford,
who served in the Revolutionary Army. He was appointed by President George Washington as a member of the Legislature
for the Southwest Territory, which would later become the State of Tennessee.
