Bluegrass Roots Index for 1974 and 1975
Has 3,985 Names!
Can You Help Us Index the Rest?

Thanks to volunteers, three years of Bluegrass Roots issues are now indexed. You can see for yourself at Bluegrass Roots Index 1974-1975 .)

If more volunteers helped for one hour each, working in their own homes on their own schedule using KGS-provided online software, that job could be finished quickly. No indexing experience is required – just a willingness to help.
 
To volunteer for one hour (or longer, if you like), send email to Rosemary McFarland at info@kygs.org
 
Thanks!
