Fort Boonesborough “A Gathering of Descendants”-

Fort Boonesborough will have a weekend that we hope will remind folks of what homecomings and family reunions are about, with a bit of a twist! We want to welcome everyone who had ancestors who came to Fort Boonesborough in the 18th century and played a part in the early settlement of Kentucky. We will have resources and information available about many of the folks who were here in those early days, ideas of where to find genealogical information, museum exhibits of artifacts from the original fort site, authors on hand to sign books about early days of the fort, the people, and surrounding areas, and ongoing historical interpretation of the daily lives, chores, skills and trades of those who came here during that time. Representatives from the Dr. Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, The Filson Club, Eastern Kentucky Library and Archives, and some local Historical Societies will be on here to assist with information on Genealogy, early Kentucky cemeteries, early Madison county Family History, and more. This event is free with regular paid admission to the fort.  Please contact Bill Farmer at (859) 527-3131 or [email protected]
