If you are a genealogist, you are also a detective, analytical, curious, a hoarder of old photos and things, and unique thinker. And over the years, you have developed a keen memory of time, places and dates. Unresolved facts bother you, like "where was he in 1850?" You see, the puzzle is yet incomplete. History and political events tie into your queries. After a study of census records dating from 1790 to 1940, your curiosity leads you to court houses where every conceivability exists. Especially, old wills, estates and marriages, which is just a start. Tax digests, deeds, minutes, inventories, sales, divisions, administrations, guardian ships and the like are next, and so on. An easy beginning is to search the wills on Kentucky Pioneers.
