The best place to research your ancestors in Kentucky is not always in Kentucky! Let’s learn what is available to help discover our ancestors as they migrated to and through Kentucky.

This presentation concentrates on researching in this state which neighbors us just beyond the Ohio River. Its beginnings were in Virginia, and were part of its rich history before becoming a state of its own.
