The KYGenWeb County Coordinators, Assistant County Coordinators and Special Projects Coordinators have donated funds to purchase 44 rolls of microfilm to be made available to the project.

The Russell County Public Library and Russell County Historical Society have made a commitment to loan more than 400 rolls of microfilm to our project in exchange for a CD of the finished images.

Dudley and Malinda Barnett

"My feelings are in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before."
