Major Genealogical Collections Donated to the Museum

These include collections donated by the Knox County Genealogical Society, Hermina Brinkmeier, Corbin Genealogical Society, Jayne Poynter of Corbin, Kentucky, and Jakalyn Jackson of Cannon, Kentucky, in memory of the late Sonya Burnette and the Knox County Historical Society.


One of the most, if not the most, significant donations to the Knox Historical Museum since its opening in 1988 was the gift made in 2006 by the Knox County Genealogical Society.
