This month, KGS & KHS welcomes Nancy Richey as she helps us learn more about our Civil War Ancestors!

Session 1 & 2: Walking The Paths of Earth No More: Beginning Research for Your Civil War Ancestor: This presentation highlights resources that aid in answering the questions: How and where do I begin? What type of records do I find? Where do I find them? Both Union and Confederate soldiers will be covered.

About the Speaker: Nancy serves as the Reading Room Coordinator and Visual Resources Librarian for the Department of Library Special Collections at Western Kentucky University. A native of Mt. Hermon, Richey has been a faculty member at WKU since July 2008. She is responsible for collection development for the Kentucky Library for Genealogy and Local History, and for providing research assistance and library research instruction to individuals, classes and organizations.

Morning session runs from 10:30-11:30 a.m., followed by a 45 minute break (brown bag lunches encouraged). Second session runs from 12:15-1:15 p.m. Registration for these free workshops is strongly encouraged. However, walk-ins are welcome. Please pre-register by calling the KHS Refdesk at 502-564-1792 x.4460 or by e-mailing us at: khsrefdesk@ky.gov
