Over the last eight years we have seen online research go from almost nothing to the vast amount of links we have today.  If you know of a link we should have on one of these pages,   please let us know.  To make navigation faster we have broken these links down to several pages.   Please note that material not housed on our site will open in a new window.  This will prevent frames within frames if the new page has them and will allow you to return to "right where you left off" on the Whitley County Page.

Cumberland River Region Research
Take a trip Down Home Margy Miles has a page on the Cumberland area of Kentucky that is a must see for anyone researching this area.  She has some wonderful stories about the people and  places along the Cumberland.  Visit often as I understand she will be changing the biographies found  in each county section.  There is some great  background information for all you "Daniel Boone"  researchers.  Lookup volunteers. So kick back and take a trip DOWN HOME.
