KENTUCKY HISTORY & GENEALOGY: Most information under this catagory will be listed under the counties
TRAILS TO THE PAST PROJECTS
DEDICATED TO KENTUCKY HISTORY AND GENEALOGY
Became a State: 1 June 1792
Welcome to Kentucky, Trails To The Past, a member of TrailsToThePast.org.
My name is Charlie and I am the State Administrator for this site.
Our purpose is to provide a site dedicated to Kentucky history and genealogy (this includes Virginia before statehood) by focusing on Kentucky families. Similar sites seem to focus on collecting data like census, cemeteries, wills, military records, etc. This is excellant, but with this approach the site could have information on the same person in multiple places. Our goal is to provide family group pages (FGP) that will link all of these pages in one location. For example, John Doe has a family group page which contains information from census data, his tombstone, his will, and a biography. With our approach, the FGP would contain links to each of these sources. Plus each source (if part of this site) will have a link to the FGP. Our hope is that this will make researching our site easier for our visitors.
This site is dedicated to those who have been part of Kentucky History and Genealogy. This will include people who have never lived in Kentucky, but their ancestors or descendants lived / married / died here.
There is no limits on the number of generations of "Non-Kentuckians" that can be listed on the website because they all have ties to the state. Again, our hope is to make researching our site easier for our visitors.
With this site, there may not be specific sites for each county. There will be data that is county specific such as census data and cemetery listings. That data will be listed under a county sub-folder, but will only be accessable from the state page.
Please bookmark this site and come back for visits. Hopefully, we will be able to assist your research.
