Birth, marriage and death records submitted by site visitor. We also have the Kentucky Death Index in the database. Some site visitors donate transcribed records with images, other donate collections of digital images which are transcribed by volunteers.Return to index
For what years do you have records?
We post records from 1792 to present as they are available and as site visitors donate them.Return to index
I submitted a request for help on an individual or family. Why didn't I receive a response?
As much as we'd like to help everyone break down their brick walls, we don't have the manpower to do so. We're volunteers and this site takes a lot of time and effort.Return to index
Because of difficulties in indexing 1911-present death records, we thought it best to incorporate the Kentucky Death Index into the database. Those records clearly show the source as the "Kentucky Death Index."Return to index
We are grateful to RootsWeb for hosting a large portion of this project. RootsWeb is not able to host our database and search engine on their space. Our domain registration and database space are currently being paid for by project volunteers. We will never sell items on our web space, but have put up a couple of affiliate links that will allow us to receive a small amount for anyone purchasing through the links on our pages. The cost to the site visitor is the same when he/she clicks on our link as it is on the company's own site. We use all funds to support this site. Any money received as a donation or through our affiliate links is announced through our mailing list, along with how the money is being used.Return to index

"My connection to the past, like any Historian's, is through the stuff that's left behind. It's not an imaginative connection, although imagination is part of it. It's about documents, it's about sources, it's about clues, it's about the leavings, the shards, the remnants of people who once lived and don't live anymore. Without the documents, there's no history."
