Kentucky Genealogical Society


Welcome to the Kentucky Genealogical Society's new website. KGS is excited about several new features – some for KGS members only, others available to everyone. 
KGS members: During the first week of September, you will receive email with login information you  need to access the members-only section of the website. Once logged in, you'll have access to your membership account, which includes your renewal date and other information. You'll find the KGS quarterly Bluegrass Roots under Members Only Files. Use Surname Research to post the surnames, places, and dates you're researching, then connect with others who might be researching the same lines. Post on the KGS Message Board to ask questions, learn, teach, and share with other members.
Not a KGS member? Please join so you can get full benefits of this new website. In the meantime, you can enjoy read-only access to Surname Research and KGS Message Board
Of course, this site will keep everyone – members and others – up-to-date on KGS programs, projects, and events. Also, the links to Kentucky-specific resources, KGS newsletters, and Tech Talk handouts are available to all.
Take a tour of the new site, and let your KGS board know what you think. Submit your comments – and your questions about any KGS program, activity, or service – via the Contact KGS form or by email to
