in the Hamilton County Tennessee Genealogy Society
The Hamilton County Tennessee Genealogy Society is an on-line, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the history and genealogical records of Hamilton County Tennessee. The primary purpose is to provide an online format for the documentation and publication of these records for use by anyone with an interest in Hamilton County.
Membership in the Hamilton County Tennessee Genealogy Society is open to anyone with an interest in the preservation of Hamilton County history and genealogy. There is no financial obligation in becoming a member of the Hamilton County Genealogy Society. Our funding is derived from contributions, the sale of publications and genealogical services that we provide. The only requirement for membership is an annual submission of one genealogical or historical document for publication on this web site. The submissions may include, but are not limited to: obituaries, cemetery surveys, biographies, GEDcoms, wills, deeds, census transcriptions, family histories, family photos, tombstone photos, or Bible records. The submission must pertain to Hamilton County Tennessee and must not contain any copyrighted materials that you do not have permission to use. All submissions will be posted on this website with credit given to the submitter. If you wish, your e-mail address will be included with your submission so that you may be contacted by fellow researchers. You may submit as much material as you want as often as you want.
Members are the first to receive notice of new publications or other offerings by the society when they become available. Additionally, members receive special discounts on these publications and offerings. Members are given e-mail notification concerning any society or genealogy related events. Members are listed on the Member page of the HCTGS web site along with the surnames they are researching so they might be connected with other researchers. Members will also gain a wealth of genealogical information and the satisfaction of knowing that your family history, and the history of Hamilton County, is preserved for everyone.
If you do not have family or historical information available to post on the web site but would still like to become a member, a small monetary contribution would also add you to our membership rolls.
