More Stay-at-Home Pastimes for Genealogists
1. Write an article for Bluegrass Roots! Your research tips, family history, or surprise findings could be helpful to others. Send your article or proposal to for consideration.
2. Re-open that long-abandoned research that you think has hit a dead end. Online genealogical websites add thousands of new records every day. Maybe the very record you need is posted now.
3. Convene a meeting of cousins via Zoom or another platform and brainstorm the family history. Maybe a cousin has photos the rest of the family doesn't have. Maybe the older cousins have info and memories the younger cousins haven't heard. Record an oral history. The possibilities are endless!
4. Help genealogists worldwide by joining the Bluegrass Roots surname indexing team. Volunteers use easy online indexing software provided by KGS and choose when and how much to be involved. To volunteer, send email to Rosemary McFarland at
Stay home but stay connected through KGS.
We're always open online!
