Blount County
Genealogy and History


Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy



This county is available for adoption.

We're looking for folks who share our desire to put data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it. In the meantime, we'd be very happy to accept any data you'd care to contribute and would like to see displayed on this site. We're looking for birth/death/marriage records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other military data. Email your transcribed data to me Christine Walters and I'll take care of putting it online.

If you are interested joining our group as County Host for this website, or any of our websites, view our Volunteer Information page.
A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a basic webpage is required.

WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.
