Arlene Eakle’s New Kentucky Blog

Arlene's Kentucky Blog My friend, Arlene Eakle, has just started a new blog dealing with Kentucky research. Her first entry was titled “Kentucky is a Major Genealogical Research Challenge!,” and dealt with the problems that genealogists deal with when doing Kentucky research. Her second blog entry is titled “I, Too, am a Kentuckian…” This entry deals with Nancy Hanks, the mother of Abraham Lincoln, who made the statement “I, too, am a Kentuckian.” I’m going to be regularly reading Arlene’s Kentucky blog, and recommend it to my readers.

  1. Dear Arlene,

    And you aren’t the only Kentuckian in the group. Fires in the courthouse? Pigs in the records room and some dog ate my deed book? Yep, I have been researching my Kentucky ancestors for years. Maybe I have just gotten use4d to them, because the Bavarians who went to Kentucky in 1856 have been much harder to trace back into Europe in 1856 than any folks I had to find in Kentucky.

    Well, I am still short a few folks, so I will be hoping for good tips from you while the pile is big.
