Kentucky Genealogical Society

Bluegrass Roots Back Issues


All issues of Bluegrass Roots are now online behind the member's wall. These are scans of the orginial hard copies and the quailty varies from year to year. 

We no longer have hard copies of Bluegrass Roots. If a photocopy of the original is required, the purchase price is $10 per issue. Please allow up to three weeks for mail delivery. Issues will be sent after the fee is received. 

Note that there are many little articles and tidbits in each issue of BGR, along with queries, book reviews, and how-to info. This index is not a complete listing of everything in these issues, just the highlights.

All back issues are available for sale. Email to request copies. 

Can you spare one hour to help index Bluegrass Roots?
KGS is hoping to “crowd source” that task. If each reader helped for one hour, the job would be done – and all of us could locate topics and surnames easily and quickly. Who knows? Maybe there’s an article in a past issue that will help you solve some family mysteries!
Here’s how this works:
  • Indexers will help on their own schedules, in their own homes, using their own devices and online indexing software provided by KGS.
  • To minimize errors, each issue will be indexed by two people, and the two versions will be compared to identify differences and make corrections as necessary. This process is similar to one used by genealogy sites such as FamilySearch.
  • We will update the index as new information is added (1973-1975). Please remember this is a work in progress.
All you need is a willingness to help. Indexing experience is secondary to enthusiasm!
To volunteer for one hour (or longer, if you like), send email to Rosemary McFarland at
We will add the indexes as they are complete below each issue.
