Welcome to Genealogy in Bracken County, Kentucky!

My name is Marla McCullough and I'm your Bracken County KYGenWeb coordinator.

The KYGenWeb is the founding member of the USGenWeb Project, a volunteer group dedicated to keeping genealogy FREE on the Internet. We are not a research service and we have no affiliation with government or libraries. Our goal is to help family researchers by finding and sharing resources on our county and special project websites.

Scroll down, or use the Website Index tab on the right, to start exploring the growing collection of Bracken County materials organized here.

All information I have to offer is on-line and I do not respond to individual research questions. Please contact me to contribute materials, register a surname, or report a technical problem with this website. My spam filter will be grateful if you put Bracken County in the subject line.

If you find a broken link, the server that hosts the file may be off-line briefly for maintenance. Before contacting me, try again in a couple of hours to see if the file is back on-line. Also, be sure to update your bookmarks. This website moved in April 2008, and is now hosted by Kentucky Kinfolk. Our data files are no longer accessible at the former RootsWeb host server. Thanks!


Have you explored this website and still need help? You will get the best results by posting clearly-stated queries on message boards and mail lists for the counties and surnames you are researching. Please visit the KYGenWeb main page to easily access all Kentucky counties.

Are you a genealogy enthusiast who also loves web design? Please consider joining us as a KYGenWeb volunteer. To learn about other KYGenWeb counties and projects, contact KYGenWeb State Coordinator Sherri Bradley, Assistant State Coordinator Suzanne Shephard, or Assistant State Coordinator Jeff Kemp. If you can do lookups or help find and prepare materials for the Bracken County KYGenWeb site, give me a holler! I welcome the assistance.

Passed W3C link-check on 1-18-2015.

Due to time constraints, I cannot research unreported change of email address by contributors, or URLs moved by managers of external websites. Regretably, a broken link may require a former website reference to be removed.
