Do you have a mystery on your hands? Are you looking for a bit more information on your ancestor than you can find on the web? Contact the Logan County, KY Genealogical Society for help.
Logan County, Kentucky is one of the few locations that has never experienced a court house fire and unless the record has been out-right taken or destroyed, it is in the vault of the Logan County Archives located at 278 West 4th Street, Russellville.
Email them with your specifics at logankyarchives at att.net and provide them with your ancestor's name and enough additional vital information to connect your guy to the records and they will email you back a list of court cases, marriages, estate information, military info, ANYTHING that pertains to your guy/girl along with information on how to mail order copies of records. OR, you can use the email as a research guide for your own visit to the Archives.
