Crittenden County Genealogy Society Meets

The Crittenden County Genealogy Society had it's first meeting of the new year today, Jan. 8th.  Some of us braved the cold and snow to meet at the Library to get the show on the road for 2011.

Our meetings are very informal but very informative.  Not always just about genealogy but other interesting topics that have to do with our families and also history of the county.

Today's program was titled: The 1930's Depression - How it affected the county and do you have family stories handed down about that time in our past history.  Everyone had some information or a family story they shared and it made for a very interesting program. 

Members and visitors present today were:  Back row:  Fay Carol Crider, Brenda Underdown, Don Foster, Anna Rhea Porter, and Steve Eskew.
Front row: Doyle Polk, Betty Croft, and Ed Shewcraft.

Steve has a new Crittenden County research book out which is titled "Crittenden County, Kentucky Obituaries ad Death Notices, Vol. I. 1886-1899.   It is a great addition for the genealogist researching their families in Crittenden County. If you might be interested in one you can Contact: him at: or order directly from the printer.  The web page address is:
