Want more information about Kentucky?  Do not forget to use rootsweb.org for queries, surnames and county information. It is Free.  Remember to give Familysearch.org a try also.  Some say Wiki  is good.
I am still battling the good and the bad and the sorta in the middle agenda on them.

But when you get to looking with a ferocious intensity you may want to spend a small amount and try this site. http://blog.myheritage.com/2014/10/myheritage-announces-collaboration-with-23andme/

If your looking  for a fairly easy computer program for you research you may want to try
My Heritage. I have used it for four years with major success. It does have a fee but it is stored in the cloud.  ( Off your own computer and can not be lost if system crashes). It has shaking leaves like Ancestry.
This months newsletter talks of various Halloween themed activities.  Death Collections, Cemeteries
being digitized, and Death Records. Also adds information on Virtual Cemetery and a Halloween Themed webinar. http://www.myheritage.com/email/14102300ea39b20cae269f322fb300c1

If you are looking for more fun, then join InDepth for their many talks, topics and activities.
