Hardin County Historical Society : Virginia Migration to Kentucky

Event Date: 
January 26, 2015

The Hardin County Historical Society will meet Monday evening, January 26th, 2015, at the State Theater Gallery, 209 West Dixie Avenue in Elizabethtown.  The buffet dinner, catered by Back Home Catering, will be served at 6:30PM. The price is $9.00 per person. Call Twylane VanLahr at 270-765-2515 by Friday January 23rd, for dinner reservations: later reservations for the meal cannot be guaranteed.


The dinner is followed at 7P.M. by a very special program, Virginia Migration to Kentucky presented by Anne Stokes Moore, Jamestown Society Genealogist. Moore grew up in the Bluegrass area on stories about pioneer Boonesborough.  She specializes in Virginia emigration and wants to spread the message on how to logically work to untangle the quagmire of the 17th and 18th century Virginia where records are destroyed. She believes that knowing Virginia's migration routes and recognizing regionalization is the key.
