NCGR has a membership roster of people from all over the United States who share a love of family research and its preservation. Through financial and human resources, NCGR helps support the Genealogy Room in the Nelson County Public Library.
We hope you will join us!
Peruse our website to learn more about what we have to offer in helping you research your family's history.
We invite you to visit the Nelson County Public Library's Genealogy Room which houses books, files, digitized records, and microfilm, donated by NCGR over the years.

Near the library, in the Sutherland Building, we also have access to the Nelson County Clerk's Old Records Room which is staffed part time to assist you with old deeds, wills, and much more.
Whether you are building a family tree, digging up local history, or researching information for your book of family stories, NCGR and The Genealogy Room of The Nelson County Public Library are waiting for you with a vast collection of photos, digitized local newspapers (The Kentucky Standard), family files, books, a full time genealogist, and two part time genealogists to assist.
