Welcome to Jefferson County, KY

historical data for the free use of all
This Site is Available for Adoption!
Jefferson County was organized in 1780 and one of the first three counties formed out of the original Kentucky County, which was still part of Virginia at the time (the other two being Fayette and Lincoln).
The county is named for Thomas Jefferson, who was governor of Virginia at the time.
The last major American Indian raid in present day Jefferson County was the Chenoweth Massacre on July 17, 1789.
We're looking for folks who share our dedication
to putting data online and are interested in
helping this project be as successful as it can
be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy
