Would you like to exchange information with others who are researching your surnames? Please consider registering your Bracken County surnames of interest by contacting me via my address at the KyGenWeb Volunteers' E-Mail Registry.

Please put SURNAME REGISTRY on the subject line of your message. The content of your registry should include:

  • Ancestor Surname(s)
  • Date range of the family in Bracken County
  • Their location in Bracken County (census e.d., town, watercourse, etc.)
  • Your name and the e-mail address where you want researchers to contact you
Your registry will remain until you tell me to remove it, but let's keep it useful! Contact me if you change your e-mail address.

July 2011 New Idea! Please contact me if you would like to add a link on this page to your family history association or other website devoted to serious genealogical research into one or more specific Bracken County surnames. The same general rules apply, i.e,, your website must have a clear Bracken County connection and its purpose must be genealogy. After your link is added, don't forget to let me know if you move your website so I can update the URI. I must periodically check links and will have to remove your registry if the link goes dead.


Please note that this is not a query or message board. Please post queries to one or more of the Bracken County Message Boards. Due to space constraints, your registry must have a clear Bracken County connection.

NO QUERIES - BRACKEN COUNTY ONLY


Due to time and space limitations, only submissions with a
Bracken County connection will be posted. Thanks for your cooperation.
