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 each county's web page. These pages are a result of that effort.

Sherri Bradley, owner of, has generously donated the webspace for this site.

Our sincere thanks to Donnie Murphy who has been the Shelby County KyGenWeb Coordinator in recent years and has maintained this website. To continue to expand this service and provide the information you want to see, my plea remains that as stated by Donnie.

Volunteers are always needed to contribute information of any kind. All data remains the property of the contributor and you will be credited as such.
