Welcome to the African American Genealogy Group of Kentucky, also known as AAGGKY or simply, "The Group." We are a non-profit group formed in 2011 by several like-minded individuals interested in the preservation of African American history and heritage in the Bluegrass. Are you interested in learning about United States Colored Troops, slave records, conducting oral histories, or planning family reunions? So are we. Share our passion. Share your stories. Join our group today!
We educate by sharing. The African-American Genealogy Group of Kentucky meets monthly on third Saturdays. To maximize involvement, our meetings are held in varying, easily accessible locations throughout central Kentucky. Our meetings are free and open to the public, though paid memberships with voting and leadership privileges are available, both for individuals and for organizations.
We invite members and those in attendance at our monthly meetings to share their research experiences and offer tips and techniques unique to conducting Black genealogical research in Kentucky. Even if you are unable to attend, our forum offers another way to share with us!
We hold workshops, round table discussions, sponsor events and speakers highlighting various topics of interest to those researching Kentucky's African American generations, including but not limited to historic preservation, computer technology, military histories, family trees, etc.
