Founded in 1985 by six local genealogists,

The Greene County Genealogical Society is a non-profit organization which now has researchers from 45 US states and several foreign countries.

Meetings are held at 6:00 on the second Thursday in March, June, and October. The meeting location is published in advance in The Greeneville Sun Newspaper.

The Society publishes a journal in May and November, The Greene County Pioneer, to further the research efforts of all who share an interest in Greene County.

Membership in GCGS is annual (January 1-December 31), and members receive both issues of The Pioneer for the calendar year in which dues are paid. The current dues are $20.00. A privilege of Society membership is unlimited publication of inquiries in The Pioneer.

The Society welcomes genealogical research, manuscripts, Bible records, journals, ledgers, vital records, newspaper articles, and other items of interest to genealogists for possible publication in The Pioneer. Submissions reviewed and accepted by the Society become a permanent part of the Cox Library collection and are thus made available to the public.
