    About the Project

    In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

    At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. My name is Jon Hagee and I'm responsible for this county. For further information about KYGenWeb contact Sherri Hall.
