Jefferson County's Creeks and Streams: Mirrors of Our Past  (Program)
Presented by: Dr. Tom Owen
 
The shape of the land in any community influences development patterns, shapes avenues of commerce, and often directs where the affluent and the poor will live.  
 
Tom Owen’s fast-paced talk reviews Jefferson County’s major creeks and streams, explaining the role that the lay of the land has played in Louisville’s rich history.  Surprisingly, lazy creeks close to our homes take on additional meaning because they mirror a storied past.

We will have resources and information available about many of the folks who were here in those early days, ideas of where to find genealogical information, museum exhibits of artifacts from the original fort site, authors on hand to sign books about early days of the fort, the people, and surrounding areas, and ongoing historical interpretation of the daily lives, chores, skills and trades of those who came here during that time.

Maryland to Kentucky and Beyond, Inc.– Genealogy Conference 2017  (Conferences & Seminars)
Brescia University, Owensboro, Kentucky
 
The 2017 Maryland to Kentucky and Beyond Genealogy Conference is June 22-25 at Brescia University in Owensboro, KY.  Registration, orientation and keynote speaker presentation are on Thursday; choose from 40 class sessions, genealogy sharing and vendors on Friday and Saturday (Saturday luncheon and banquet); concludes with Sunday Mass. 
 
The first MD2KY Reunion in 1990 at Nazareth, KY was an opportunity for descendants of the Maryland to Kentucky pioneers to meet and share family history information.  The most recent event in 2014 at St. Catharine College in Springfield, KY hosted 465 participants from 26 states.  
 
In 1785, a group of families from the southern Maryland counties of St. Mary’s, Charles and Prince George’s formed a “Catholic League of Families” (aka “Emigration League”) pledging to migrate to Kentucky. Reasons for this move were varied. Economics may have played a large role in this westward movement, with the depletion of available land in Maryland and the after-effects of the constant plundering by the British during the Revolutionary War.
 
This event offers descendants of the Maryland to Kentucky pioneers – and others – an opportunity to meet, share family history information, and learn about their ancestors through  40 class sessions. The agenda also includes vendor shopping, a luncheon and a banquet on Saturday, and Sunday mass.
 
Participation in the most recent event in 2014 hosted 465 participants from 26 states.

Kentucky History and Genealogy Conference  (Conferences & Seminars)

Eight lecture tracks cover historical/genealogical society development, professional development for librarians and archivists, technology, basic genealogy for beginners, advanced genealogy, ethnic roots, Kentucky institutions and their collections, and Kentucky history.
 
Nationally recognized Kentucky historian Dr. John Kleber will be the keynote speaker. 
Librarians and archivists are invited to meet for an informal networking lunch on that Saturday at The Brown Hotel, a short walk from the library.
