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.
