My personal experience 1973 I went to the GSMNP head quarters and asked to see old photos of Cades Cove, I was denied. At that time I knew they had family history's, artifacts, and other items but the public was not allowed to view it. I also knew I had kin that once lived & are buried in Blount Co, & was hoping to find a connection to a family in Cades Cove after I learned the true facts of how many families were forced to leave. In much story telling while in the GSMNP, I was told the the people gave up the land willingly. Through the years I now know the truth, so much as been destroyed beginning in the 1930's with the latest being the Caughron house.
The benefit of becoming a member, you are helping to preserve the heritage, history, genealogy of what is remaining. I currently belong to many genealogy Societies in TN, OH, and PA. I know for me the $15.00 for membership to the CCPA is by far the most rewarding.
