The Blount County Genealogical and Historical Societywas founded in 1985 as a non-profit organization and is an affiliate of the Blount County Public Library. Our proceeds are used to benefit the Library.
The purpose of the Society shall be:
1. To bring together persons interested in genealogical studies and in the collection and preservation of genealogical and historical materials pertaining to Blount County.
2. To collect and preserve historical documents, traditions, oral history and items of historic value.
3. To assist the Blount County Public Library in enlarging its collection of genealogical and local history reference materials.
4. To strive to increase the awareness of the pleasures and values to be gained from the study of family history and the preservation of historic interest.
5. To sponsor classes, seminars, tours and other events for the educational benefit of members and the public.
6. To publish The Blount Journal, a semi-annual periodical providing a medium for exchange of genealogical and historical information.
Although the Society cannot do genealogical research for individuals (neither for members nor for non-members), volunteers will spend UP TO 30 minutes checking INDEXED SOURCES for 1 (one) surname. There is a minimum fee of $10.00 for each inquiry. This fee will provide up to 10 photocopies. You MUST INCLUDE a stamped, self-addressed envelope for the materials to be returned to you. Research requests cannot be handled by email; you must submit your clearly stated request along with payment.
