Coming Soon: New Crittenden Genealogy Book

Ever since 1990, when Brenda Joyce Jerome, CG, published Crittenden County, Kentucky Marriages 1842 - 1865 and Abstracts of Wills Book 1 1842 - 1924, she said she has regretted doing only the will abstracts. "There is so much to be learned from reading every word of the will. Therefore, I am now publishing a book with full transcriptions of the wills. The 1990 book will not be reprinted in the same format," she explained.

Crittenden County, Kentucky Will Book 1 1842 - 1924 plus five rejected/unrecorded wills is finished and will be available the middle of October. Included are the rejected/unrecorded wills of John Gregory, Samuel Nunn, Joseph Mercer, Nancy Wilson and Frankly Linn.

As this is a very limited printing, it would be wise to reserve your copy now. To do this, send your name and address, along with a check or money order for $31 to Brenda Joyce Jerome, CG, PO Box 325, Newburgh, IN 47629-0325. Indiana residents must include $2.10 for state sales tax. The price includes postage.

The soft cover book is printed on acid-free paper and contains 234 pages plus a 20 page full-name index. Included with the will transcriptions are the book and page number of each will, names of witnesses, date the will was produced in court for probate and the date it was recorded.
