Cumberland Gap Genealogy Jamboree
Cumberland Gap, TN is a very small town with a great big sense of community and cooperation. N.E. Alabama Genealogical was well represented during the first three days of the Jamboree. Vendors from VA, TN, KY, IN and many family groups were represented in the downtown area. Great speakers could be heard in the Wilderness National Park Welcome Center, at the Holiday Inn and in various parts of the downtown area. These speakers were some of the best known in the genealogical community. NEAGS members took turns working our table so that the others could hear some of the programs. This was such a great weekend for genealogists and it was at no cost to those attending. Mark Treadway and the other volunteers who made this possible are to be commended for a job "well done".
