|BRECKINRIDGE COUNTY, KENTUCKY|
|"A Glimpse of the Past"|
|"A Glimpse of the Past" is a
booklet that was written by the late Guida L. Goodman
Snavely. One of Guida's
passions and hobbies was that of genealogy researching. Born and raised in Breckinridge County, her parents
were from the Breckinridge County family lines of Goodman and Priest. Many a researcher in the county,
as well as around the country, have benefited from the work she has done on her family lines. It was her love
of genealogy and history that led to her writing, "A Glimpse of the Past". As she eloquently writes, "... [the
booklet] was for the younger generations that have never heard of such things and to refresh the memory of some
of us older ones."
While I had debated about placing it online, I began to realize here was where it needed to be. Guida's purpose
in writing this little booklet was just what all researchers, young and old, are doing when they pull out the old
ledgers, courtbooks, marriage books, and dusty books of yesteryear. They are trying to preserve the past for
future generations. Guida passed away just within the past couple of years, and this section is dedicated to her
and her memory.
This booklet is available through the Breckinridge County Archives if anyone is interested in a copy. You can
