Govenors Web Records


Governor's Office Web Records

These records contain web pages that appeared on the official web site of the Office of the Governor, Commonwealth of Kentucky, at various points in time during an administration. In an effort to accurately reflect the organizational structure and appearance of the website over time, periodic snapshots of the complete web site (at the bottom of the page) of the Governor were captured to reflect major changes. These snapshots also contain related sites, such as that of the First Lady, Lt. Governor, and the Governor's Mansion. Indexes to record series or special events that were documented on the web are also offered. These listings provide more complete documentation of specific records than snapshots alone can provide. For information about additional Governor's records in other formats, please consult the online public catalog.

Website Snapshots

This section contains snapshots of the governor's web site and links to Lt. Governor and the First Lady, which often have separate domains. Contains pages from few other state agency domains except those listed by the Secretary of the Cabinet.

Governor Daniel Mongiardo (first-term Lt. Governor) instead of incoming Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson.

    The records and publications listed in this archive are historical materials, “frozen in time.”

    This means these archival pages have no longer been updated to reflect current information, and links to other sites and e-mail addresses may not work. In addition, the archival pages within this site may not reflect current web standards, including compliance with the Americans for Disabilities Act.

    The E-Archives site itself does comply with Kentucky and federal standards.
