Laurel County Kentucky Historical  and Genealogical Society

                                         Purpose of the Society

The Laurel County Kentucky Historical Society's purpose is to collect and maintain as many
records and as much information about Laurel County's history and people as possible and to
make this collection available to Laurel Countians and visitors who seek it.  We specialize in
genealogical research. Our library contains many volumes of reference materials, family histories,
old photos and newspapers, as well as records on microfilm, microfiche, and CD-Rom.  The
Society also has many donated artifacts, some on display and some in storage while we prepare
our museum for the public.

The Society continues to transcribe and publish census, marriage, cemetery and old newspaper
records of Laurel County, along with its quarterly newsletter,
Branches of Laurel.
