Having started in 2002, what is now known as the Eastern Kentucky Genealogy Conference was once simply known as the Johnson County Reunion and started out as a group of online researches who wanted to meet face to face. By 2004 the response was overwhelming and the name was changed and a committee formed as we broadened our horizons in an effort to bring you this wonderful event year after year.
