The Society is a non-profit organization. The officers and staff are volunteers. The primary goal is to collect and preserve the records of Pulaski County and materials relating to its history.


Membership is $3.00 per year, and may be mailed.  If you wish to receive a membership card, please send a SASE.


A Newsletter is mailed to current members in May and November. Any member can submit a query of 50 words or less. We also print articles relating to a Pulaski family, place or event. We reserve the right to edit. Notices of family reunions are also welcome.


Family files (donated) are maintained by the Society. Family sheets, charts and materials are appreciated. If requested, we will copy your donated material and return the original promptly.


Our shelves contain family books (donated) and “books” bound from materials in the files. For the office researcher we have books from surrounding counties as well as from Kentucky, Tennessee. Virginia, North and South Carolina.


The staff does not do in-depth research. For a limited search a fee of $5.00 per family is required. All written enquiries must include a SASE. You will be advised by return mail of any information available and any charges for copying. Individuals may do further research from our published records.   


Photocopies of ORIGINAL Marriage Bonds and consent forms for the years 1799-1871 will be duplicated and certificated by the staff for $1.00 each. Available copies of ORIGINAL Wills will be duplicated and certificated for $2.00 each document.  The list of available Wills is in the back of the INDEX TO WILLS.


Request for wills, deeds, etc. should be sent to the County Clerk Office, Pulaski County Court House, Somerset, KY 42501. Court House hours are 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. (EST)
