Green County KyGenWeb


Welcome, my name is Herb Scott .  I am presently the Green County Coordinator.  I want to thank all of those who have worked so hard to make this site one of the best. Also I want to encourage all of you to send me any ideas, comments, corrections, or questions that  you might have.   This is your web site!   Please let me know what you think.  



The above picture is of Brush Creek in northern  Green County. It is along this creek that many of my ancestors settled almost 220 years ago.  I count among my ancestors those carrying the names of:  Scott,  Preece or Priest,  Skaggs,  Bale,  Etherton or Atherton,  Dobson,  Elkin,  Millen,  Lancaster, and  Defevers.  Many of their descendants can be found  still living on and working the same land that their families homesteaded 200 years ago!  I am proud to call these people my kin.
* The mother of two gggg-grandsons of one of these men recently painted this scene.*



Green County Genealogy



Mailing List

           Green County has it's own mailing list. It has become a valuable place for researchers to find and exchange data about their ancestors who lived in or passed through Green County.  You may want to subscribe and post your Green County Surnames.  To subscribe  to the lists, select these links and type "subscribe" in the message field, leaving the subject line blank. Please turn off your auto-signatures. Mail mode will give you the posts to the list one at a time as others send them. Digest mode will send out all the day's posts in one or two large "mail packages" to your e-mail box.

I would also  highly recommend Sandi Gorin's South Central Kentucky mail list for anyone researching  families that lived in or passed through this area of Kentucky.   (mail mode)   (digest mode)  (mail mode)  (digest mode)
