Program Description

Event Details

Our library history and genealogy programming promotes an awareness of and interest in local heritage. Cindy's presentations are different every month, covering a wide variety of topics, and we often welcome special guests! Intended for ages 18+.

Our April feature is an exploration of land research and how it connects people to a tract of land using state, county, and circuit court records. Land grants, tax lists, deeds, and circuit court case files allow researchers to follow a family and their neighbors over the course of decades—or even centuries!

As part of this program, we're pleased to welcome this month's special guest: Kandie Adkinson, an Administrative Supervisor for the Kentucky Land Office with over 37 years' experience handling land patent records.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact us ahead of the program or event date.
