Genealogy Tea & Sympathy: 1950 Census Release Prep ( Virtual)

January 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Is a Kentucky Ancestor eluding you? Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who understands! Join our group discussion and bring your genealogy challenges to unlock the past. If you have questions about which source to use next, what terms like “proof standard” mean, or even how to involve the next generation in your family’s history, KHS can help.

Our virtual meet-up gathers the fifth Saturday of the month, and we welcome all research levels – let’s learn from each other’s experiences! Even if we can’t offer a solution, we promise to share it all over a cup of tea, with plenty of sympathy.

Did you know the 1950 United States Census will be released on April 1st, 2022? For our first Genealogy Tea & Sympathy of the year, we’ll talk about everything we know so far on this exciting new addition. Plus, we’ll help you find your family once the census images are available. Registered attendees will receive a Zoom invitation via email the week of the event.

Each ZOOM Genealogy Tea and Sympathy session is FREE.

Virtual First Friday: The Narcotic Farm: The Rise and Fall of America’s First Prison for Drug Addicts

February 4 @ 1:00 pm

Nicknamed simply “Narco” by locals, the United States Narcotic Farm opened in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1935. Equal parts federal prison, treatment center, and research laboratory, Narco’s mission was to rehabilitate drug addicts and find a cure for opiate addiction. Join us via Zoom* to learn more about the treatments pioneered at Narco, patient experiences on the farm, and the scandal that led to the facility’s closure in 1975. Drawing on a wide variety of sources – including many found in the Kentucky Historical Society collection – authors Nancy D. Campbell, JP Olsen, and Luke Walden offer “a vital perspective on US drug policy, addiction, and incarceration as the nation struggles with a new opioid epidemic.” Originally published in 2008, University Press Kentucky re-released The Narcotic Farm: The Rise and Fall of America’s First Prison for Drug Addicts this past year. View the companion documentary film here. Dr. Nancy D. Campbell is a historian of science, technology and medicine. She serves as Professor and Head of the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. JP Olsen is a documentary filmmaker and writer. He has worked on numerous programs shown on A&E, CBS, Discovery Channel, HBO, and PBS, and has written for New York Magazine, The New York Observer, Newsday, The Village Voice, and other publications. Luke Walden is a documentary filmmaker, cameraman, and editor. He has taught photography at the University of Connecticut and Rhode Island School of Design, and film making at the New York Film Academy.
