I want to share a couple of very helpful websites with you.
Steve Eskew of Crittenden County has captured images of a number of fire insurance maps for several western Kentucky towns and placed them on his website. The original maps can be found in the Crittenden County Historical Museum. These maps show the location of buildings in the business areas of such towns as Crayne, Dycusburg, Shady Grove, Fredonia, Salem and Smithland for the early 1900s.
Another website to check out is the National Center for Health Statistics. Links from this site will take you to any state in the USA to learn the price and where to order birth, death, marriage and divorce records. The beauty of this site is that you can find what you need in one place - no more roaming through many state websites to find out what you need to know.
