Welcome to the Perry County Kentucky Genweb site. I'm Wanda Langdon, the new county coordinator. Pardon our dust while this site undergoes a major transformation.

I need your help to make this the best it can be. If you have a book on Perry County and will do lookups please let me know. Do you live in Perry County and will do lookups or research at the local library and/or courthouse, please volunteer. Submit your surnames and brickwalls. Do you have deeds, wills, etc. that you have obtained? Consider transcribing them and submitting here to help others. This website is starting from scratch. Your help is appreciated, by me as well as your fellow researchers.
