I am looking for advice in looking for information for Catlesburg county in the early 1850's. Can ANYONE help me. Birth, death, marriage, etc.  Thank you so much 

Need advice/direction - a death in 1852 in Clark County. Where should I be looking for a death certificate, will or probate records? Thanks!

Kentucky Historical Society added 51 new titles to their library collection thanks to a donation from Kentucky Genealogical Society.

I have several families from the Wayne County, Kentucky area, that I have lots of information on. If any of these ring a bell, let me know! We may have information to share and maybe even be cousins! Crisp, Foster, Eads, Tuttle, Norman, Davis, Quisenberry, Piborn. (May be more, but that's what I can remember off the top of my head, and these are just direct lines)
