Welcome to the Breckinridge County KYGenWeb! My name is Dana Brown and I am your County Coordinator. I have been doing research since February, 1999. My grandparents were born in Custer and Big Spring, natives to the county as well as the four to six generations of their families before them. As a result of my ancestors presence in the county for the past 200 years, my research has mainly been in Breckinridge County. Over the years, "Breck. Co.", as I lovingly refer to it, has become very near and dear to my heart.

A heartfelt thanks goes to John G. West for his service as County Coordinator for the past 12 years. John accepted the position in 1996 when the USGenWeb and KYGenWeb were just starting out. Best wishes go out to him in his new ventures.

Below is an "ENTER" button. Click on it to begin an adventure into all that's Breckinridge County. You'll discover her towns, her rolling hills and deep hollers, and her people both past and present. Hopefully you'll discover a cousin or two while traipsing around.


The KyGenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored.

In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.
