Diversity and Inclusion Statement
We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive learning environment for all Kentuckians and Kentucky genealogical researchers. We strive to offer a wide array of topics that support the varied Kentuckian experience and highlight the kaleidoscope of humans of every race, color, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran status, or immigration path that have called Kentucky home since before its statehood in 1792. We welcome the incredible opportunity to learn and grow together in our pursuit of genealogical education and preservation.
The Kentucky Genealogical Society acknowledges the place we call present day Kentucky is historically indigenous homeland that belonged primarily to nations of Cherokee, Chickasaw, Miami, Quapaw, Osage, and Shawnee people.
