Help Our Cause

As  organizers of the Genealogy Jamboree, one of the things we are most emphatic about is keeping the Jamboree free and open to everyone. However, this is a lot easier said than done. The costs are higher than one would ever imagine. We have to pay for advertising; flyers; the porta-johns are very costly; et cetera – the bottom line is that it costs thousands of dollars to put on the Jamboree. All of the vendor registration fees go to the Town of Cumberland Gap to help with their costs – without them, the Jamboree would not be possible. Although we do try to pay for everything with donations from businesses and organizations, we run short without the help from individuals. So, if you can, please consider making a donation; any amount will be greatly appreciated. Donations are welcome click on the Donate button to donate with a credit card.Thank you!
