The Kentucky Genealogical Society joins the Kentucky Historical Society with a series of free family history workshops each month at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History. 

This May, get started on your genealogy journey, or come for a re-fresher course on the basics of genealogy research! Presented by KHS Library Staff, Louise Jones & Cheri Daniels.

Session 1: Genealogy 101

This session introduces you to the basics of genealogy: getting started, using various records,  looking at your family archives, online databases, researching in courthouses and libraries. (Given by: Cheri Daniels, MSLS)

Session 2:  Genealogy 102

This session will go a step further to help you get a hands-on introduction to census records, pedigree charts, family group sheets, vital statistics, and Kentucky specific resources. We will explore the various components of the individual record types, and review what kind of information can be found within each. (Given by Louise Jones, MLS)
