Kentucky Genealogical Society


Welcome to the Kentucky Genealogical Society website. This website launched September 1, 2014, and KGS is excited about several new features – some for KGS members only, others available to everyone. See the Website Tour linked in the right sidebar for an overview of new features.
Date Change for November Workshop
Due to the Frankfort Candlelight Tour, the November "Second Saturday" program will be held November 1 rather than on the second Saturday in November. You won't want to miss this program about the Civil War Governors of Kentucky Digital Documentary Edition. See Events for details. 
Meet the Candidates
Candidates for the 2015 KGS Board are: President: Johnna Waldon, Vice President: Linda McCauley, Corresponding Secretary: Fran Salyers, Recording Secretary: Jodi Roessler, Treasurer: Dudley Ellis, Board Members-at-Large: Kathy Moats, Lori Poole, and Debra Renard. Learn more about these candidates here.  The election will take place November 1, 2014 prior to the start of the KGS/KHS Family History Workshop program. According to KGS bylaws, members in attendance at that meeting are eligible to vote. 
KGS Donation Provides New Books to KHS Library
The Kentucky Historical Society's Martin F. Schmidt Research Library announced how they spent the $1500 donation from the Kentucky Genealogical Society. This money came from donations by KGS members through contributing memberships and a supplement from the KGS treasury. Fifty-one new titles were added to the KHS collection covering history and genealogy in 14 counties, general Kentucky, southern, and American history, and genealogy standards and methodology.
