Jun 23 all-day
A Gathering of Decedents @ Fort Boonesborough | Richmond | Kentucky | United States

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 will welcome everyone who had ancestors in the area of Fort Boonesborough in the 18th century and played a part in the early settlement. We will have resources and information about many of the folks who were here in those early days, ideas of where to find genealogical information, and museum exhibits of artifacts from the original fort site. Authors will be on hand to sign books about early days of the fort, the people, and surrounding areas, and we will have 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 local Historical Societies will be on here to assist with information on Genealogy, early Kentucky cemeteries, and early Madison county Family History. We will again be inviting a representative from the Kentucky Secretary of State’s Land office for a presentation on early Kentucky Land Patents and the processes involved in obtaining land in early Kentucky. and more. This event is free with regular paid admission to the fort.  Please contact Bill Farmer at (859) 527-3131 or bill.farmer@ky.gov
