  1. Our ancestors did a great job of documenting family history
    in Massachusetts and Virginia back to the 1600s but when
    one tries to find family history in Kentucky from the early
    1800′s none seems to exist today. Did census taking not
    exist from the times our pioneers forged westward up to the
    early 1800s?

    This has left a severe lack of information on my children’s
    paternal family tree.

    Thank you in advance of any reply.

  2. Researching Kentucky death records is impossible when you live so far away…until YESTERDAY! I did not know the cause of death for my baby uncle, paternal grandfather, and paternal grandmother, as well as not knowing for sure my paternal grandmother’s parents names. But I found these answers viewing the images of these records in the new databases. What an exciting day!

  3. I have a question:
    I just got a really old photo album of the Luttrell’s and their cousins that came to Ft. Johns in Siskiyou County, CA in 1855 and their relatives. The photos are professional and were taken mostly in San Francisco, but a few were taken in Folsom. Also, most of the pictures do not have names. Where can I put the pictures on ancestry.com so that fellow genealogist can look at them?

  4. I have looked for over 10 years for the burial place of Harrison Lyon, my g-grandfather. Knew he died in Louisville in Nov. 1910. My feelings were he’s buried St. Stephens Cemetery, Louisville, Jefferson CO., KY. I went to the cemetery, they said no, not buried St. Stephens.
    Low and behold with the death records Ancestry has put on line, I did a search for Harrison and there was a funeral home record, burial place “ST. STEPHENS” At last!!.
    Thank you, Ancestry.
