According to Wikipedia, the dash under the notes means "tenuto," as you said, or "to hold or sustain a note for its full length."

The dot under the notes means "staccato," as Dave said.

And if the two notations are combined, it means tenuto notes which are played in a "non legato" or detached manner. In other words, you would hold down each key for nearly the full length of the note (tenuto), but release it just before playing the next note (non legato).

You're welcome! And thank you for asking, because I don't think I'd never seen that notation before, and I don't think I'd have found the answer in Wikipedia if you hadn't mentioned "tenuto." So you helped me learn something new today!
