Kentucky History and Genealogy Conference

While at the Maryland to Kentucky Conference in Owensboro last month, I met the fine people from the Louisville Free Public Library announcing their two day Kentucky History and Genealogy Conference.  The conference will be held at the main library in Louisville, at 301 York Street, on August 25th and 26th.  And it’s free!

This looks like a wonderful conference – eight conference tracks with such interesting topics as

  • Researching Your Revolutionary War Era Ancestors
  • Using Google Earth to Pinpoint Your Ancestors’ Locations on Current Maps
  • History of Navigation on the Ohio River
  • Genealogical Gems of the SAR Library Collection
  • Digging Up Grandpa Without A Shovel – Parts 1 & 2
  • Walking the Paths of Earth No More:  Finding Your Civil War Ancestor
  • 18th and 19th Century Burial Practices
  • Developing Your Library Collection
  • Comings and Goings:  Migration Routes of Your Ancestors

and many more!  There are seven choices during each of the eight time periods.  A few are repeated.

A plus for any librarian, you earn continuing education units (CEUs) for each session you attend – a total of nine for the two days!

Visit their website for more information and to register online.  See you there!
