The Huguenot Society of Tennessee is donating their historical collection to the Chattanooga Public Library. Included are decades of the National Huguenot Society journal The Cross of Languedoc, along with articles, pamphlets, and books related to their French Protestant/Calvinist history. Materials include information about early American settlement in the colonies and Florida and facts about American presidents who have Huguenot lineage.
Chartered in Chattanooga in 1960, the Society meets in April and November at the Lookout Mountain Fairyland Club. Information about membership, including certified Huguenot ancestors, is available online at www.Huguenot.netnation.com.
Chattanoogans wishing to explore Huguenot ancestry are invited to contact President Jo Hill at 706-891-0391.
