Welcome to H-Kentucky
The goal of H-Kentucky is to create an online collaborative environment to facilitate communication and the exchange or scholarly and pedagogical ideas among teachers, researchers, scholars, advanced students, and related professionals (e.g. local historians, librarians, archivists, genealogists), all in an open, democratic, respectful and non-partisan manner. H-Kentucky especially welcomes those who are interested in Kentucky, as well as those in any history/humanities field who live and/or work in Kentucky.
This just in from Dr. Melissa McEuen, Transylvania University:
Melissa McEuen and Tom Appleton, co-editors of Kentucky Women: Their Lives and Times (2015), will discuss this exciting new history in several venues this month. All are open to the public.
An open and free website sponsored by the Kentucky HIstorical Society, here you will find articles, tutorials, and upcoming events for genealogists and authors of local Kentucky history. It includes full length editor-reviewed articles and book reviews, as well as heavily illustrated case studies, video interviews with local researchers and Second Saturday speakers, instructional tutorials, and KHS collection highlights.
Located in the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the KHS research library holdings span all of Kentucky’s 120 counties and include published works; archival records such as manuscripts, photographs, maps, atlases; oral history interviews; and microfilm.
