Join our Library staff on the 5th Saturday of every month from 2-4PM for tea time and good ole fashioned conversation. Have an ancestor that is eluding you? Confused about which source to use next? Have questions about the proof standard or how to get the kids involved? Bring along your genealogy issues, hot topics or questions and the group will try to help you out. Even if we can’t solve your problem, we promise to provide lots of tea and sympathy!

All research levels welcome – let’s learn from each other’s experiences!

Each Genealogy Tea and Sympathy session is free and tea is provided at the event. Please pre-register by calling the KHS Refdesk at 502-564-1792 x.4460 or by e-mailing us at: khsrefdesk@ky.gov
