Robards geneal. in Harrodsburg, Ky Histor. Society
If you are interested in an extensive history of the Robards family and their genealogy you may want to contact the Harrodsburg Kentucky Historical Society.............There is a book in their library written by James Harvey Robards of Whiteland, Indiana in 1910 called, "History and Genealogy of the Robards Family"........
The book is almost 200 pages, and describes in detail alot of the Robards history and genealogy...........including alot of pictures of Robard ancestors.....It is an excellent book........They copied it for me about 8 years ago for about 10 cents a page....I am not sure what their current copy rates are, but the book is definitely worth every penny......
The library also sent me a copy of a Harrodsburg Herald article, dated Thursday, January 11, 1973, on the Robards family and their history......It is an excellent summary of the Robards family history and genealogy...........
Harrodsburg, Kentucky was the initial location where the Robards settled after leaving Virginia in the late 1700's..............
