History and Genealogy: A Researcher's Guide


Important Notice: This index is provided to gauge possible availability of information on Christian County ancestors.

This database is not an offer from the library to copy information mentioned. The library does not own all sources indexed. Copyright laws restrict amount of photocopying by a single individual or from a single source. Most important, staffing and funding are insufficient to attempt anything of that scale. However, most sources are widely available; friends and relatives may be asked to check further; or researchers may be hired. Please do not ask, by e-mail, for the library to research, photocopy and mail material. If an honest effort to locate the information on your own fails, make requests by mail, enclosing a SASE. Minimum charge is $1.00. Individual photocopied pages are ten cents. Individual paper copies from microfilm are twenty-five cents. An additional ounce of postage is required for each four pages. Allow ample time for a reply, remembering that any such research has to be done on staff's limited personal time.

This database is not a comprehensive index of any of these sources. That would be hundreds of thousands of citations. It is a list of the chief Christian County families or the heads of those families for which information appears in these sources.

The amount of information varies widely. Some items are merely queries from people who may have additional information. Others may be entire books on the families. When page numbers are given, only the beginning page number appears. The article may be a couple of sentences or many pages.
