2013 Genealogy Jamboree in Cumberland Gap, Tennessee

Fern Lake, Middlesboro, Kentucky

Those of you with family roots in the tri-state area of southeast Kentucky, northeast Tennessee, and southwest Virginia may be interested in the 2013 Genealogy Jamboree.  This is becoming an annual event in the tri-state area and will be held this year on June 6, 7, and 8, in Cumberland Gap, Tennessee.  While I have never been to the jamboree, I hope to go this year.  Included in the festivities are crafters, surname booths, professional and amateur genealogists, historical and genealogical societies and speakers, demonstrations, music, and food.  Sounds like fun to me--and definitely worth a visit to check out family history leads!  Also, if you've never been to the Cumberland Gap area, you've missed out on one of the most beautiful places in the world.  Mountains and valleys full of beauty surround you, and the area is full of history.  To learn more, check out the links below.  Hope to see you there!
