New Year Brings Changes
to 2nd Saturday Genealogy
With a decade-long partnership with the Kentucky Historical Society now dissolved, KGS is now the sole sponsor of 2nd Saturday Genealogy programs. We hope to make this transition as seamless as possible, but the following necessary changes will have an impact on KGS, its members, and all who attend 2nd Saturday Genealogy programs.
1. Publicity – Watch for program information on the KGS Facebook page and on this website. KGS will send program reminders by email 7-10 days prior to each program.
2. Registration – Look for a registration link in announcements on the KGS Facebook page and on the KGS website. You’ll also see a link in the emailed reminder sent by KGS. Just click on the link, fill in your name, check “member” or “non-member,” add your email address, then “continue” and “confirm.” By registering, you ensure that KGS will have enough seating and handouts for everybody who attends.
3. Cost – KHS is now charging a substantial rental fee for KGS to continue holding 2nd Saturday Genealogy programs in the Brown-Forman Room. To make the transition easier for everyone, KGS will continue the programs at that location for the next several months. To defray the additional cost, the KGS board has voted as follows:
a. Admission to these programs continues to be free for KGS members.
b. Admission is $5 per program, payable at the door, for those who are not KGS members.
KGS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Our funding comes almost exclusively from membership. If you're not already a member, please consider joining. Just click on "Join KGS" on this page for details.
