Our History

Casey county was formed in 1807 from Lincoln County. Named in honor of Colonel William Casey, it is located in the Pennyrile and Outer Bluegrass regions of the state. The elevation in the county ranges from 710 to 1789 feet above sea level. In 1990 the county population was 14,211 in a land area of 445 square miles, an average of 31.9 people per square mile. The county seat is Liberty. Surrounding counties are Lincoln, Pulaski, Russell, Adair, Taylor, Marion and Boyle



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. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. If you would like to volunteer for a county or find out more about this project, contact Sherri Hall Bradley
