We usually don’t creep outside of Warren County lines for stories (we will if it’s awesome) but this is about each and everyone of you. Yes, each and every one of you. If you want to better know your present it’s best to know your past. Recently, I discovered the beauty of the second floor at The Kentucky Museum and have done a swan dive into my family genealogy. That’s why I was excited to see the Mammoth Cave Genealogy Day coming this Saturday.
The Mammoth Cave Genealogy Day this Saturday and will be held at the Edmonson County Public Library in Brownville at 280 Ferguson Street,beginning at 9:00 AM. There will be some great presentations with local University professors and experts on the subject. Here are some of the sessions:
