10:30 am – 12:45 pm – Second Saturday Genealogy: Using Supplemental Records, at the Kentucky Historical Society, 100 West Broadway

Second Saturday Genealogy Header

Session 1: Introduction to the Draper Manuscripts

Most of us have heard of this resource for early American Settlement – including Kentucky – but how many have actually used them in our research? The KHS Library has a collection of the Draper Manuscripts on microfilm, but finding the entry you need requires multiple indexes and strategies. This session will introduce you to the resource as well as provide hands-on experience with the various indexes available. 

Session 2: The Revolutionary Soldier and “Black Jenny” – A Mystery Revealed Through Supplemental Records

While searching various supplemental records in an attempt to untangle the identity of three wives, a story began to emerge that had been hidden from subsequent generations. Attendees will be taken along the supplemental record journey to see how the story came back to the family and led to a previously unknown branch. We will also learn about the variable nature of supplemental records, and why they might just lead you to further documents.

Free admission. Walk-ins are welcome, but since seating is limited, we strongly encourage pre-registration.

Self-publishing is not what it used to be. New technologies and changing attitudes have helped make it the fastest-growing sector in today’s publishing industry. As an affordable, timely option that offers greater creative control, self-publishing has become a valid option for many writers. In fact, it has never been easier to publish your work, as long as you go into the process prepared. Join us, wherever you are on your writing journey, and learn how to successfully navigate the world of self-publishing.

An Introduction to Self-Publishing
Presented by Mark Kinnaird, PSPL staff and local author

Is self-publishing right for you? This session will introduce you to self-publishing and include a discussion of its benefits in comparison to more traditional publishing. Learn what your options are, and get an overview of the process with a self-pub checklist.
