In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the
Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide
a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored.
In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual
were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.
At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to
coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
That is how this project was started, and it is an invaluable resource to researchers.
If you would like to participate by adopting a county,
volunteering for one of the special projects,
or adding your information with other researchers,
please contact either 
State Coordinator  Jeff Kemp 
Assistanct State Coordinators Ann Allen Geoghegan 
or Denise Wells
