This project is currently in need of a coordinator. If you are interested, please contact Sherri Bradley.

In designing the Kentucky Vital Records Project, we focused on issues that were important to us as genealogists. We hope you find wonderful treasures here, and then share your time and personal collections to make the same happen for another!

Free access. Access remains free thanks to generous supporters. We wish to thank Rootsweb for hosting our image collection, and the generous project volunteers who provide funds for our web space and domain registration. All images have been prepared and transcribed by site visitors and project volunteers.

Easy Searches. Our search capabilites allow you to see every unique surname in the database, so you can look for those obscure spellings and misspellings.

Records available (although not all on this site): Kentucky marriage records are available beginning in 1792 with statewide registrations beginning in 1958. Birth and death records were kept sporadically from 1852-1910 by individual counties and cities. Statewide birth and death registration began in 1911.

Requests for information: We do not have the resources to answer queries about individuals.

"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness and the most disquieting loneliness."

-- Alex Haley
