Kentucky Historical Society Launches New Web Site
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) has launched a new Web site offering enhanced content and services.
Visitors to the KHS Web site at www.history.ky.gov may explore a wide variety of features, including: an online exhibit of the Toyota Kentucky Hall of Governors; family history and genealogical research using KHS databases; and access to the KHS’s calendar of events. It's also possible to plan a visit to History Campus, which includes the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum. Visitors may also sign up for KHS’s monthly e-newsletter by submitting their e-mail address on any page of the Web site.
“We hope visitors notice some of the positive changes that come with this new Web site, which help us provide a world-wide audience with the best Kentucky history resources,” says Kent Whitworth, executive director of KHS. “The new Web site is another tool that assists KHS in providing connections to the past, perspective on the present and inspiration for the future.”
News releases and general announcements will also be placed on the Web site. To post a comment about the Web site, suggest additional Web site services or suggest content changes, visitors may use the “Contact Us” section of the Web site.
