MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Genealogy Society, forced to move out of its office in the County Service Center this summer to make way for the new 911 call center, finally has a new home.

Society President Dick Baer said the group has been offered space by Mark Ramser in the building at 114 E. Gambier St., formerly occupied by Interchurch. He said it will probably take five or six weeks to move in and get set up, but they hope to be open by mid-January.

“It’s a smaller place, but nice,” Baer said.

The society library had been located in the county building for the past seven years, conveniently located across the hall from many of the county recorder’s records that genealogy researchers often utilize.
