Laurel County Kentucky Historical and Genealogical 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 newsletter, Branches of Laurel, published twice a year.
