Kentucky Genealogical Society
Register NOW for the 43rd Annual KGS Seminar.
DID YOU KNOW? Starting July 1, a new state law requires KGS to pay
6% sales tax on every seminar registration received?
To be fair to all attendees, KGS will not charge the sales tax
on this year's registrations –- but we still have to pay it.
Please consider signing up before July 1
so your total fee supports future KGS programs and services.
(Registering before the early-bird deadline of June 25 will help even more, because it will save YOU money, too!)
