Kentucky GuardianshipEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
County officials appointed guardians to provide minor children with education or training, making it more likely that the minors would become contributing members of the community rather than wards of the county or state.
Guardianship records usually give the name of the deceased parent(s) and the names and ages of the minor children. The records have been kept by the clerks of either the county courts or the circuit courts in Kentucky. They are most often intermingled with probate or court records.
The Family History Library has guardianship records for most counties in Kentucky. They can be found in the Place Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under:
