Salute to Our Fallen Heroes Project

Every day is memorial day to a soldier. This project is our way of honoring all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family members and loved ones of those that gave their lives to fight for our country.
May God give you peace in your heart and strength to carry on.

They proudly served their country.
Now, they proudly serve with angel's wings.


Salute to Our Veterans

 Every day should be Veterans day--a special day that every American should take a moment to reflect, and thank those who serve in our armed forces, both past and present? This project is our way of honoring all Veterans who served his or her country for our freedom. Thank you and God Bless!



Naming the Forgotten - The Eastern State Hospital Project

Naming the Forgotten, a special project within the KyGenWeb, is working to gather the names of those who lived and died at Eastern State Hospital, formerly the Eastern State Lunatic Asylum, prior to 1956.  It is suspected that the hospital cemetery may hold as many as 10,000 unmarked graves.  The projects goal is to identify those who are buried in the hospital cemetery and the numerous others who died while in the hospital.  Before the registration of deaths in 1911, records pertaining patients are extremely hard to find.  Anyone with information to assist in this endeavor please contact Mary Hatton.
