Celebrate National Family History Month.

October Family History Month

In 2001, Congress first passed a resolution, introduced by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, creating Family History Month. Hatch wrote, “By searching for our roots, we come closer together as a human family.” Family history enthusiasts continue to celebrate National Family History Month every October. It has grown and evolved on a national stage, with community groups, historians, storytellers, and genealogical and historical societies promoting and celebrating National Family History Month as way to commemorate each family’s rich and deep history.

Come to the Historic Town of Cumberland Gap, Tennessee October 16-17 and celebrate National Family History Month with the Genealogy Jamboree and Pioneer Days. We’ll have Genealogical and Historical societies, Lectures by genealogist and historians, Crafters, Living History and others.
