Dave Tabler began blogging about Appalachian History about 13 years ago. He has put an enormous amount of work into this blog as he strives to write a 400-500 word article every day, Monday through Friday. His work takes the form of articles, extracts, pictures, interviews, and audio samples.

"The Appalachia covers a vast expanse of area: It includes all of West Virginia and parts of 12 other states." Our beautiful Tennessee falls within that area. You can read Mr. Tabler's interesting blog by clicking on this link: Appalachian History. I'm sure he'd love to hear your comments. You can also read his interview on the History Nexus site. You'll learn all manner of neat things about our Appalachian expert.

I want to post an addition to the above two paragraphs. Dave left a comment after seeing my post and I thought everyone might not see it. He wrote:

Judith, thanks so much for all that enthusiasm! I do want to point out that, while I started my journey into the world of Appalachian history 13 years ago in the form of helping my dad edit his memoirs, the Appalachian History blog itself only dates back to December of 2006.

And boy, what an eye opener it's been digging up all this stuff. Truth really IS stranger than fiction.
So, I wanted to correct my statement on how long the blog had been online and apologize to Mr. Tabler. Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, it is. You've found some really amazing stories out there. Sorry I misrepresented the length of time Appalachian History has been online. I read that you had helped your Dad edit his memoirs, but I didn't read your interview closely enough. Thanks for setting the record straight. I hope my readers will check it out and enjoy the blog as much as I do.

Appalachia fascinates me, although I've never been there and have no family from there. I think it must be a place of the heart for me anyway.

This blog is simply beautiful in every way. Love it.

Thanks Lydia for following Tennessee Memories! So many of our ancestors came through Appalachia on their way to "somewhere" that I feel it holds a fascination for most everyone! Thanks for the complements on my blog. Come back often.
