The prehistory and history of Kentucky spans thousands of years, and has been influenced by the state's diverse geography and central location. It is not known exactly when the first humans arrived in what is now Kentucky. Around 1800 BCE, a gradual transition began from a hunter-gatherer economy to agriculturalism. Around 900 CE, a Mississippian culture took root in western and central Kentucky; by contrast, a Fort Ancient culture appeared in eastern Kentucky

Apparently I didn't read the small print., This is a list of names that individuals paid to have their names entered. If your ancestors didn't pay, they apparently are not included. I wouldn't have paid myself so it's no wonder that most of my Kentucky ancestors didn't pay either. Only one ancestor is included.

Be forewarned this IS NOT a "History" in the sense of what one thinks of a narrative history. This is nothing but a compilation of "Biographical Sketches" of people who apparently contributed to a book that was supposedly published. Example: Mrs. Lydia Posey was born in Henry Co. a daughter of John and Elizabeth Foree ...Mrs Posey owns 800 acres and is a member of the Shelbyville Baptist Church and so on and so on, There is no History of Kentucky other than "Sketches of Our Book Patrons" I believe the "Patrons" gave money to have a book printed in 1887 and this is an early version of a vanity press. It is nothing but their own biographical submission. I concede it may be handy for genealogical research as many entries speak of "the son of or the granddaughter of, and who they may have married. Consider the sketches just a five or six paragraph obit without the date of death such as Prof. John Stapp born Oct 29 1830 ....Prof Stapp is a member of the Christian Church and he is a Democrat.....
Again it is interesting like reading old newspaper clippings but if one is looking for a historical narrative as the name suggest this is not a history in the sense of a regular narrative history.

This book on the history of Kentucky is very well organized and so helpful with my genealogy research. Excellent for the home library.
