About the book on this CD:
This book was originally published in 1885 as The History of Kentucky, Edition 1 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.
The book on this CD is divided into two sections:
Section One: Histories of each of the seven counties in the Western Kentucky region: These county histories average between 11 and 17 pages each. This section has a total of 106 pages. (Note: The original 1885 edition of this book included a history of the state Kentucky which is not included on this CD.)
Section Two: Family Biographies of the Western Kentucky region: This is the largest section of the book and includes 761 family biographies. More than 10,000 individuals are made mention of throughout the text. This section has a total of 246 pages. This is a rare and very valuable reference with a wealth of information for genealogy research of family history in the western region of Kentucky.
