Find Your Kentucky Roots at New Free Online Genealogy Magazine

KENTUCKY (2/25/14) – The Kentucky Historical Society recently announced the launch of its new, free online family history magazine, Kentucky Ancestors Online.

This electronic magazine, or e-zine, represents the latest evolution in KHS publications and continues the long-respected legacy of the former print journal, Kentucky Ancestors.
 
The transition of the 40-year-old print publication to an online publication took shape last fall, with the goal of reaching a wider audience and of presenting new genealogy stories and information on an ongoing, rather than a quarterly basis.

KAO incorporates high-quality feature articles and a continuing spirit of learning and engagement, with such additional elements as history mysteries, case studies, book notes, collections corner, trending topics, how-to articles and commentary.
 
As readers engage with the new format, KAO will serve as the predominant source for instructional articles, dialogue and events related to Kentucky ancestry and local history research.

KHS and KAO editorial staff invite readers to explore this new resource at kentuckyancestors.org/welcome and to engage with fellow researchers, experts and readers.

Authors and researchers are invited to share their stories, discoveries and expertise with the KAO audience. For more information, see Author Submission Guidelines online at KAO.
