I thought I'd take a moment to announce a website I have been developing over the past couple of months for the genealogical and local history research of Harrison County, among whose neighbors are Pendleton, Robertson, Nicholas, Bourbon, Scott, & Grant Counties. It can be found at www.harrisoncountyky.us, or if that link should not work try www.familyhistorytime.com/harrisoncountyky. Both are URLs for the same place.
I have been interested in Harrison County genealogy and local history research for the past twelve years and so have collected quite a bit of information which I thought would be of interest in tracking down those ever elusive ancestors. I have posted quite a few items to www.harrisoncountyky.us to aid in the local and genealogical research of Harrison County, and hope to have more to add in the coming months. Some of the materials may not be 'new' and can be found elsewhere on the web, but there are and will be quite a few unique items to be found here and nowhere else. The index of World War I records that can be accessed through the 'Harrison County History' page is one such example
I am relatively new to web publishing, so please bear with me if you encounter any problems with the site. There are still spots that are 'under construction.' It is best viewed at a 1024x768 resolution on a 17-inch monitor using Internet Explorer. Some of the pages should play music, but maybe not, depending on the computer. Please let me know if there are any problems with the function of the site or errors in the texts, and I will see what I can do.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the site and find something useful in it. If you have any materials or suggestions to improve the site, please let me know. I only have one pair of hands to type with and am still working on my own family tree, but have found the work on this website to be a lot of fun and a learning experience, which is what genealogy should be about.
Until later, take care, and Enjoy!
For those of you who may not know; the W T Young library in Lexington has
the most extensive holdings in the state for old newspapers on microfilm. I
believe almost every county in the state is represented.
This link will take you to the page where you can fill in the name of the
newspaper and the year you need. If it is available, it will give the call
numbers for the staff to "pull" the microfilm. Some may be available for
This is a link that lists all Kentucky newspapers and when they were
founded. Of course, they also contain subscription rates. But, this will let
you know the name of the county paper where the obitutary may have run and
if the paper was in existance at that time.
I have noticed, that the earlier years around 1910's do not have "obit
columns", but "notices" may be scattered through out the paper. Some early
obits may give only the burial notice if the deceased was in a nursing home
and had no close family. But, also, there could be a short article about the
deceased, if family was available. It seems, around the late 1920's to early
1930's, the regular obitutary columns appear.
For someone visiting from a long distance and planning to visit the Wm T
Young Library, I will give my experiences. There is a small parking lot next
to the library. In summer when school is out, there is no parking attendant
to take "fees". But, during the school session, due to the proximity to UK,
parking is at a premium and can be a little expensive if you plan to spend a
few hours there. So, if you are staying in town, I would recommend the
public transit. I believe it is on a "bus route". Last summer, they did not
charge for copies. I do not know if this will continue.
Some obitutaries can be a wealth of information on family members.
I hope this helps someone.
Just letting everyone know that I am the coordinator for Robertson County,
