Those Places Thursday - Livingston County, Kentucky

In September, I visited Livingston County, Kentucky for some research on my Weeks ancestors who lived there in the early 1800s. 

The Courthouse was built in 1845 and the process is currently underway to get it named to the National Register of Historic Places. Even though the building is 166 years old, it is not the building where my 4th great-grandparents, James and Delinda Younger Weeks, and my 5th great-grandfather, Job Weeks, would have done business. They were all three deceased before it was built.

The Livingston County Historical and Genealogical Society is across the street from the courthouse. 

Birdsville is north of the county seat, Smithland. According to another Weeks researcher, this is the general area where our Weeks family lived along the Ohio River.
