About the Data

This data set contains the page images of twelve Genealogical Publishing Company titles. Comprehensive in its coverage early Kentucky, this data set references approximately 225,000 individuals within a unique collection of court, marriage, military records, and probate records.

This compilation of books is especially useful because much of the information was collected from local sources and cover the period of time before Kentucky began keeping record of vital events (in 1852). Among the valuable resources, you'll find comprehensive accounts of Kentucky's participation in the Revolutionary and War of 1812. These accounts are especially useful because the majority of Kentucky's adult male settlers served in the Revolutionary War (many were Virginians who were granted bounty lands for their service). In addition, you'll gain access to record of all marriages ever listed in The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society as well as an exhaustive index to individuals referenced within Kentucky's early statutes.

In combination, the narrative and genealogical resources collected here will help you put the lives of your early Kentucky ancestors in historical context.

Within this great variety of records, you'll find:

  • Names and descriptions of family members
  • Dates and details of vital events
  • Historical essays
  • Biographical sketches
  • Details of military service
