We'll be happy to help your families' obituaries, news items and other historical data find a home here at Kentucky Genealogy Trails, where it will remain free for all to view. You never know who you might meet and what family data they may share with you -- it could start a whole new branch of the family!

We also use the mailing lists to announce our website updates.
