• websites or Facebook groups
• genealogical or historical societies
• public, private, or college libraries that have genealogical collections
• museums
• blogs
• any other resource that could help family history researchers
 
Tell KGS which county (or counties!) you choose, then collect and email resource links related to that county to president@kygs.org. KGS will give you credit for every published link you submit and we use.
