Kentucky Genealogical Society

Resources for our members. 

Birth Index 1874–1878: An index of birth records recorded in 114 Kentucky counties between 1874 and 1878.

Bluegrass Roots: Digital versions of the KGS quarterly journal.

Bible Project: The birth, death, and marriage facts lovingly written in family Bibles are true treasures – and sometimes the only record of long-ago family events. To help keep those records alive and make them available to researchers, the Kentucky Genealogical Society launched a Bible scanning project in the spring of 2015.
