May be it is my old Kentucky home. Or maybe not.
The history buffs in Fayette County, Kentucky, are currently in the process of scanning old land, census, and marriage records. It is anticipated the documents will be available through the Kentucky Archives sometime in January. This could be a gold mine for some genealogy buffs if your family was in Mason County early on, as Mason County was part of Fayette County at one time. There is no mention if those of us who are not in Kentucky will be able to search for these nuggets online.
It is reported the books are being indexed by the Archives. Maybe an online master index should be undertaken by a group of volunteers in the area?
