This site is an outgrowth of an intensive effort by the Colonial Dames of America in Tennessee to catalogue as many of the portraits as is possible either in collections in the state or those significant to Tennessee in the possession of out-of-state owners or institutions.
The portraits currently on this website were documented, beginning in 2003, and all information on them is as accurate as it could be at the time of documentation. This is a living site, and we encourage comments, corrections, amplifications, and anything else that might assist in making the entries more accurate and more complete. Many corrections have already been made, and we anticipate as more entries are added that further modifications will be necessary.
We would like to encourage additional submissions and have provided a variety of forms to assist in getting information to the site. If you have questions regarding submissions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will try to assist you.
We are no longer accepting emails regarding any portraits numbered before #1877, since entries before that number date largely from 2003-2004, and #1877 begins in 2013.
We receive requests from users regarding their portraits. CLICK HERE to be connected to some of the requests.
