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, Strictly Kentucky
Genealogy, and Kentucky Kinfolk are dedicated solely to this
purpose and continue from month to month.
Here are some genealogy
items from our September 2013 issue.
