If you are researching in Harrison County or in one of its neighbors, I thought I would
write a little note to say that I just added some new databases to the website at
. They are indexes for the two commemorative newspapers of the
county, the "Special Edition" of the 1896 'Cynthiana Democrat' and the
1905 "Souvenir Supplement" of the 'Log Cabin.' An index of the subjects
of the 1993 Pictorial History of Harrison County has also been added.
In addition, several indexes of local history publications, many currently offered for
sale by the Harrison County Historical Society (Join NOW, as there is no day like
yesterday! ;-)), have been posted and available for browsing at their site for a few
months now. These indexes are the same indexes as are published with the books, so
hopefully you will find a name to make the purchase of a book worthwhile.
The links to all these indexes, plus notes about newspaper resources and other published
materials for the county can be found at www.HarrisonCountyKY.US/publications
. It is one
URL you will want to remember!
Also, a complete transcription of Lucinda Boyd's 1894 'Chronicles of
Cynthiana' and the Harrison County chapters of the 1882 'History of Bourbon,
Scott, Harrison and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky' have also been available for
reviewing at this site for a few months. Chronicles is at
and the Perrin history is at
So, click, read, learn and enjoy! Good luck with your research!
P.S. Please let me know if any link should not work; it was a little task to combine all
of this material under one heading, some new pages mixed in with older ones.
