Genealogy by the States – Week 15 – Kentucky

Posted by Jim Sanders on Sunday, 14 April, 2013

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Kentucky. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Kentucky. If you don’t have any connections to Kentucky, find a Kentuckyresource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 4/14/2013 – 4/20/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.

I have no connections to Kentucky, so I thought I’d highlight one source as well and point out a number of Kentucky Genealogy Resources.

The Kentucky State Archives is a great resource for those who have confederate ancestors in Kentucky. You can search for the your confederate soldier on the website.

Genealogy by the States – Week 14 – Vermont

Posted by Jim Sanders on Sunday, 7 April, 2013

This was suppose to come out on 4/7. I fell a little behind due to a new job and a few personal items.

This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Vermont. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Vermont. If you don’t have any connections to Vermont, find a Vermont resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 4/7/2013 – 4/13/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.

Although my family roots date back to colonial New England, I have surprisingly few relatives who have a connection to Vermont. A second cousin one time removed was married in Vermont in the 20th century. That is about all the direct connections I can find to Vermont in my ancestry. Since I’ve been unable to find more connections to Vermont, I thought I’d look for a few more links than normal.
