We foster excellence in genealogy through educational programs and projects that preserve, produce, and disseminate knowledge of genealogical or historical value for Kentucky people.
We bring together researchers and family historians and promote fellowship and networking. We encourage the preservation and availability of Kentucky records essential to genealogical and historical research.
