Newsletter Subtitle: Kentucky Will Books with Indexs

Month Day Year:  MARCH 29, 2011


Since we are talking about Kentucky this week, I thought it would be nice if I would do a Kentucky crate:  So let's see what I found when I started prowling through my Kentucky shelves!  I have found about six books that, because of current demand needed reprinting, so I am adding those to this list.  They are just back from the printers so they really do look spiffy!


These caveats [an explanation to prevent misinterpretation.] apply to all the books written by this author, so are stated here once to save space on this newsletter. 


All spellings and abbreviations are listed as found in the original documents.  No attempt was made to correct spellings or interpret abbreviations has been made by this author.  Names mentioned in each instrument are indexed as being mentioned only once in that will even though they may be mentioned several tines.  If a surname is assumed from the text of the instrument, the surname appears in (  ).  Officials' names appear on the first document of each instrument only. 


This series of books differs from other will book abstracts as these are an every-name index to the complete will book.  All names mentioned in this book's index or found in the wills, estates, sales, and depositions, etc., are listed here.  Also included are all slaves' names found in the original instruments.  Notes for the genealogist are also included in this series.  Many of the wills, sales, depositions and dowers have clues to further research.  In the index in the book we send you, an asterisk follows the name of the testator who was usually the maker of the will. 



By Jana Sloan Broglin, Published by Heritage House for YOGS, ©1999, 53 pages, cardstock covers, stapled three times. Each volume is indexed.  Check out our website to see the indexes for Hardin County Wills Book A 1793-1809 at $15.  Wills Book B 1809-1816 at $15.  Wilsl Book C 1816-1821 at $15. 


Hardin County, KY, was formed in 1793 from Nelson County, KY.  In 1800, Hardin County encompassed the modern counties of Larue, Hart, Edmundson, Grayson, Breckinridge and Meade.  By 1810 Hardin County included only Larue plus portions of Meade, Hart and Breckinridge counties.  In 1820, Hardin included parts of Meade and all of Larue.  By 1830, Hardin's borders were as they are now, except for the county of Larue, which was formed in 1843 out of Hardin.


The address of the courthouse is Hardin County, KY Courthouse, 14 Public Square, Elizabethtown, Y42701-1437. 


The wills, estates, inventories and sales papers found in this volume were read from microfilm of the books as found in the Clerk's Office.  Because of space limitations the entire information was shortened to fit this format.  Notes for your information are listed in the book with the will.  Microfilm roll #390774 Contains Will Books D-E, 1821-1866. 


Names are listed in this index in the book with the will number in which they appear.  This every-name index gives the surname and first names of anyone listed somewhere in  this book.


In this abstract of the ten-page index only those surnames with three or more (actual number of) first names are listed here:  Abel 7.
