Several handbooks are available that give additional information about research, records, and record-finding aids in Kentucky. Among these are:


  • Hathaway, Beverly W. Inventory of County Records of Kentucky. Salt Lake City: Accelerated Indexing Systems, 1974. (FHL 976.9 A3hba) These inventories are listed by county and then by the name of the library or archive. It indicates the types of records available and the years they cover.

For those wishing to understand more about the lives of their Kentucky ancestors, the Kentuckiana Digital Library houses digital copies of hundreds of old books about the life and time and environment where your ancestors lived.
