Kentucky Genealogical Society

Welcome

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.
 
Schedule Change to Second Saturday Workshops
Effective January 10, 2015, the lunch break, featuring catered box lunches, will no longer be a part of the Second Saturday schedule. The first session will continue to start at 10:30 a.m. Rather than a one-hour lunch break, we'll have a 15-minute break before the second session starts at 11:45 a.m.
 
Registration is still encouraged to allow for planning. To register, call the Kentucky Historical Society Library reference desk at (502)564-1792, ext. 4460, or email khsrefdesk@ky.gov.

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.
