Kentucky Genealogical Society
Welcome to the KGS website. Changes are in the works that we hope will make this your go-to site for information about researching Kentucky ancestors. Some of those improvements are coming soon. Others are more long-term projects. Please be patient with us as we make those changes.
Map from Seminar Session Available
As promised at the 2014 KGS Seminar, J. Mark Lowe has shared his Kentucky Timeline map from his County to Commonwealth session. Please respect his copyright by using it only for personal use.
Summer 2014 Bluegrass Roots Published!
Bluegrass Roots has a new format designed to make online reading easier — and, frankly, to make 'BGR' look better. The Summer 2014 issues is available on the Members Only page. (If you are a KGS member, please sign in to access that page.)
ATTENTION KGS MEMBERS
If you are a member of KGS and trying to access the latest issue of Bluegrass Roots, please use the website account that was previously created for you. Creating a new account yourself will not give you access to members only files. If you do not have the user name and password that was emailed to you at the time your account was created, please email the KGS webmaster to get that information.
Also please note that the new Bluegrass Roots layout increased the size of the file, which means it will take a more time to open. We will work on a solution for this in the future, but for this issue, it may be a slow process. Thanks for your patience.
Help the Kentucky National Guard Honor Their Fallen
The Kentucky National Guard Memorial Committee is seeking researchers to assist in aiding their efforts to recognize those who served Kentucky and our Nation in the National Guard and lost their lives doing so. If you have some free time, know of any in your hometown (Kentucky) and are willing to get a little information (maybe a picture, obituary, local newspaper story of event) then please contact Jason LeMay. He will be glad to give you some names to work with. Time is nearing for the unveiling of the monument and there are still many names to be identified. If you are unable to do research yourself, but know of some local folks (or even groups who would be interested-pass the word. We do not want these folks to be forgotten! Read the full press release from the Kentucky National Guard for details.
