One of the popular features
found in The Kentucky Explorer each month is genealogy,
often published in the form of letters, queries, photographs,
and stories. Several serial features, such as Kentucky Genealogy
Help Line, Genealogy From The Long Ago, and Strictly Kentucky
Genealogy, are dedicated solely to this purpose and continue
from month to month.
Here are some genealogy
