The Signal Mountain Genealogical Society to Celebrate the Beginnings of Signal Mountain  

Join us for our March 5, 2013, meeting at the Walden Town Hall at 1:00 p.m. as John Wynne, a native of Signal Mountain noted for his knowledge of our community, will present "C. E. James and the development of Signal Mountain."  From Charles James's dream of building the Signal Mountain Inn to the present day community of over 7,000 inhabitants has been quite a journey.  John Wynne's presentation will provide us with an in-depth look at the beginning of that journey. 

The March meeting will begin with refreshments at 1:00 p.m. and the business session will begin at 1:30.  As always guests are welcome. 

The Signal Mountain Genealogical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered by the State of Tennessee in the spring of 1986.  It was established for the purpose of allowing all persons interested in the process of genealogical research to share their research and to find encouragement to further their work in that field.

Membership is open to anyone who has a desire to explore their roots and family background.  Our members come from a varied background and are interested in a multitude of locations other than Signal Mountain.

Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Walden Town Hall.

Dues are $10.00 per calendar year.
Programs vary from general genealogical workings to specific families as well as local history.  If you are interested in genealogy, membership in our genealogical society, or just curious - come to one of our meetings and see what is going on in the field of family history.
