The History of Kentucky - Edition 5: Anderson, Franklin, Jessamine, and Woodford Counties, Kentucky

An informative and historical overview of north central Kentucky including ALL of the following counties: Anderson County, Franklin County, Jessamine County, and Woodford County, Kentucky.  

An important resource for the study and research of the north central Kentucky region history (including Civil War history) and genealogy.

This fascinating and detailed book is on CD in Adobe Acrobat pdf format and contains ALL of the following family biographies from all four north central Kentucky counties listed below (in addition, thousands of additional individuals and surnames are mentioned within these biographies.)  A very high percentage of these individuals were residents at various times in several different counties so they may be found in a different county than what might be expected.

About the book on this CD:

This book was originally published in 1887 as The History of Kentucky, Edition 5 by F. A. Battey Publishing Company.  The authors are: J. H. Battle, W. H. Perrin, and G. C. Kniffen.  A total of nine editions or book volumes were published of The History of Kentucky, each covering a completely separate group of counties.  Each book volume was titled by the publisher as an edition rather than by volume number.  As a result, each volume is entirely different but are titled as edition 1, edition 2, edition 3 rather than as volume 1, volume 2, or volume 3, etc.  The original printings of the books in this series also included a history of the state of Kentucky which is not included on this CD.  For other volumes in this series, see our page of Kentucky County History and Genealogy titles.

This volume is made up entirely of Family Biographies of the counties in the four counties listed above in the north central region of Kentucky and includes 378 family biographies.  Several thousand individuals are made mention of throughout the text.  This is a rare and very valuable reference with a wealth of information for genealogy research of family history in the counties in the north central region of Kentucky. (Note: The original 1887 edition of this book included a history of the State of Kentucky which is not included on this CD.)
