Welcome to the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Welcome to Kentucky, Trails To The Past. I am Charlie , your State Administrator. I am here to serve you. My goal is to add family history to this site with the goal of making our site one of the best, if not the best, Kentucky genealogy / historical sites on the internet.
I would be honored to include your family history to this project.
Kentucky, officially the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is a state located in the east south-central region of the United States. Kentucky is one of four U.S. states constituted as a commonwealth (the others being Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts). Originally a part of Virginia, in 1792 Kentucky became the 15th state to join the Union. Kentucky is the 37th most extensive and the 26th most populous of the 50 United States.
Kentucky is known as the "Bluegrass State", a nickname based on the bluegrass found in many of its pastures because of the fertile soil. One of the major regions in Kentucky is the Bluegrass Region in central Kentucky which houses two of its major cities, Louisville and Lexington. It is a land with diverse environments and abundant resources, including the world's longest cave system, Mammoth Cave National Park, the greatest length of navigable waterways and streams in the contiguous United States, and the two largest man-made lakes east of the Mississippi River. - courtesy Wikipedia
One of our projects at Kentucky, Trails To The Past is transcribing and posting Kentucky Historical Books that are in the Public Domain (Not under Copyright protection). At this time I have several books I plan to put online. This is more of an editing / formatting / proofing documents converted from PDF (Acrabat Adobe) files. Two of the books are listed below. Please contact Charlie if you would like more information on this project.
