This is a genealogy blog about my ancestors of Nicholas County, Kentucky. It shares stories, includes pictures, records, family history items and pedigree charts. I welcome any information, corrections or comments. All information and pictures are copyrighted and the property of the blog owner. If someone would like a copy of a picture, I would be more than happy to send it to you. Also, if you used information on this blog for genealogical purposes I would appreciate being listed as a source that I might receive proper credit for my research. If there are any pictures posted on this blog or my website that is a family member of yours and bothers you in any way, please let me know so that I can remove it. My intention is not to offend anyone, but to have a blog about genealogy and identify as many old photos as possible. I have several blogs and a website as I do research on many of my family lines in other localities. Nicholas County has a very special place in my heart as that is what I recall from my younger years as the place where my family was from "down in the country". My family has been in Nicholas County since the time of its inception. A few of my ancestors lived in Bourbon County before Nicholas County was created. I am very proud to be a direct descendant of John Kincart (my 3rd great grandfather) who founded the town of Carlisle.
I have been interested in genealogy since I was a young child. I knew my family had a history written up, but I could not comprehend how to order more records or continue further research. After many years I finally pulled out the family history and started to do research online. It was like hitting a gold mine of information.
You are welcome to send an email, a photo, an article or anything you wish about genealogy or anything to do with Nicholas County!
