It’s been called the fastest growing hobby in the U.S., and for some in Kentucky, it’s a cottage industry. It’s genealogy ... and if you’re considering taking it up, there’s good news: Searching for your family roots in Louisville is getting easier all the time. In fact, help could be as close as your local library.
For those willing to travel a bit farther, the Kentucky Genealogical Society has joined forces with the Kentucky Historical Society to offer periodic free family history workshops at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort.
Some helpful genealogy web sites:
