 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ The Tennessee State Library and Archives and Ancestry.com are collaborating on genealogy events in Nashville next month.
 
Beginning Sept. 16, special lectures and research assistance are scheduled each day at TSLA's building directly west of the state Capitol in downtown Nashville.
 
On Sept. 20, a full day of presentations designed to help family historians trace their roots will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Nashville.
 
Presentations at the event will include information about using ``old fashioned'' research in libraries and archives, as well as focusing on online resources.
 
Among the topics to be covered are research in court records, use of family search software and use of DNA testing in genealogy.
