Kentucky Families: A Bibliographic Listing of Books About Kentucky Families


With over 1,500 Kentuckian surnames referenced in this major new work. Mr. Hehir provides in one source a comprehensive listing of all printed Kentuckian genealogies and family histories that have made their way into major library collections across the United States. The author researched library listings and catalogs covering many genealogical libraries including the Library of Congress, the National Genealogical Society Library and the Library of the Daughters of the American Revolution along with historical association libraries from Massachusetts to California. Many of the books deal with multiple families some with non-Kentucky roots. Arranged for ease of use the entries are presented alphabetically according to surname with a cross index to family and secondary names to help researchers find surnames that would otherwise remain buried with the text. No genealogist working with Kentuckian families should be without this time-saving volume on his or her bookshelf.
