Casey county was formed in 1807 from
Lincoln County. Named in honor of Colonel William Casey, it
is located in the Pennyrile and Outer Bluegrass regions of the state. The
elevation in the county ranges from 710 to 1789 feet above sea level. In
1990 the county population was 14,211 in a land area of 445 square miles, an
average of 31.9 people per square mile. The county seat is Liberty.
Surrounding counties are Lincoln, Pulaski,Russell, Adair, Taylor, Marion and Boyle.
In March and April,1996,a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky
Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point
for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In
addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an
individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the
index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate
the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
