This is a list of maps about Williamson County and the middle area of Tennessee.

Maps are a unique resource to use in conducting genealogy research. If you haven't used maps in your research yet, information found here may help you find more information about your family. You might already have an atlas book1 or an encylopedia that will have a contemporary map of Williamson County or the middle area of Tennessee. If you don't have these items go to your local AAA Club (must be a member) or to a local bookstore to find a contemporary map of the area.

Start with contemporary maps and work your way backwards in time to locate maps of Williamson County as an aide in your genealogy research. Older maps of the area may show the name of landowners, streams, location of historical churches and schools. When finding this information you'll add more to the historical aspect of the area your family once lived.

The maps shown are for viewing where Williamson County is located in perspective to the whole state of Tennessee. Knowing this information will also pinpoint where the adjoining counties are in relationship to Williamson County. Sometimes our ancestors used a courthouse in a different county, especially if they lived closer to it rather than their home county. We will continue to locate maps for Williamson County. If you have a map you would like to share with us, please send an email to the coordinators. Thanks! we appreciate your help!
