It is hoped
you will find these birth records useful in your search for your ancestors and
family. There were databases of births prior to 1911
in selected counties, but those records are just now becoming
available online with assistance from a group of volunteers of the KyGenWeb Project. If
you don't see the years you need located here yet, you can contact the Dept.
for Library & Archives in Frankfort. The following years are available
for Shelby County: 1852,
1853, 1854, 1855, 1856, 1857, 1858, 1859, 1861, 1874, 1875, 1876,
1877, 1878. The State
Auditor also maintained lists filed by county, from 1852-1910.
These earlier years were experimental and were rather hit and
miss, but worth checking into if you're missing a birth date for
someone around those timeframes.
