Fort Boonesborough will have a weekend that we hope will remind folks of what homecomings and family reunions are about, with a bit of a twist.  We want to welcome everyone who had ancestors who came to Fort Boonesborough in the 18th century and played a part in the early settlement of Kentucky.  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 or 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. Representives from the Eastern Kentucky Library and Archives, Kentucky Genealogical Society, Clark County Historical Society, The Boone Society, Madison County Historical Society, Society of Boonesborough and the Ruddell's and Martin's Stations Historic Association will be on site to assist with information on Genealogy, early Kentucky cemeteries, early Madison county Family History, and more.  This event is free with regular paid admission at the fort.  For more information e-mail Bill Farmer at bill.farmer@ky.gov or (859) 527-3131.
