Clay County Ancestral News Magazines

We at the society know these are troubling times and that families are spending much more "at home" time together. We are temporarily making available four of our most popular magazines for your reading pleasure. We hope you have many enjoyable hours reading and sharing your own personal stories with your loved ones.

uncommon valor and competence on the battlefield.

"The Clay We Were - A Visual Journey" published by the Clay County Historical Society received the 2017 "Book of the Year" in the local history category by the publisher, Acclaim Press and also received a Kentucky History Award from the Kentucky Historical Society.
