Kirk Woosley Patton of Fincastle Ancestry Research is actively involved and experienced in the search for ancestors in Kentucky and throughout the United States. Kentucky was a place of destination as well as a point of migration from the 1770s through the nineteenth century for millions of Americans and immigrants moving westward through the Cumberland Gap of the Appalachians and along the Ohio River. There are many valuable resources for genealogical research in this heartland region of the nation.
