If you are into Kentucky Ancestory this is an excellent tool. The Bracken County Public Library has a copy that is never in the library. Every patron who checks it out, returns it and I have to order them a copy. It has become so popular with the members of the Bracken County Historical Society that I am now placing an order for the book to be added to the Historical Society collection. What better recommenation? It speaks well of a book when you can check it out of the library for "Free" but you want your own copy.

I'm a retired professional researcher and this book is one of my main references for locating Kentucky records. I've misplaced my book so I'm ordering a new one. If you want to know what Kentucky records are available and where to find them, you need this book!

This is very helpful in understanding the history of the area, who first moved into the area and why, as well as providing lots of "where to look" references.

The book is basically a source book telling the reader what is available in each county in Kentucky and where the documents are stored, either locally, Kentucky History Museum, Frankfort, etc. It will not have the information but directs you to where it is stored. In this use, it is an important aide in your research as a source book.
