Kentucky Genealogical Society
In This Season of Giving . . .
KGS is eager to award grants to organizations that want to digitize Kentucky historical/genealogical records and share them online – records that may not be available anywhere else. We need four volunteers to review and evaluate the grant applications. The volunteers must be KGS members – two who live in Kentucky and two who live elsewhere. All application reviews will be done online – no travel or meetings involved, just five hours or so of your time. To express interest in helping, please send an email to or fill out this simple form!
