BEDFORD, Ky. (January 2004) – The Trimble County Historical Society will continue to hold regular meetings after enough people responded to a plea for new members at a Dec. 6 meeting.

Two months ago, the group had considered reverting into nonfunctioning status because of a lack of active members. But a last-ditch membership drive was successful enough to avoid that move. New officers were elected at the meeting. They include Joy mack, president; Joshua Olds, vice president; Judy Wakefield, secretary; and Wilbur Cundiff, treasurer. In addition, three new people attended the meeting, said member Marguerite Miller, who will continue to produce the society’s newsletters.
“I believe the recent stories in local newspapers have helped us out a lot, “ Miller said. “I know that we would not have had these new people otherwise. We even had people from far away states volunteer to help with typing. Many people read the RoundAbout!”
The society also announced it has paid for a one-year subscription of Ancestry.com “Plus.” It will be available to the public at the Trimble County Public Library for all to use.
“If you have not used it, come and try it out,” Miller said. “If you have used it before, you know how useful it is for research. All Census years and much more are on this site.”
