Fincastle Ancestry Research

Summary Tab
Extended Tab

Biography:
Born and reared in Kentucky, Kirk Woosley Patton's roots run deep in the Bluegrass with at least seven generations of ancestors buried in its soil. Kirk was graduated with honors, including induction into Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Kentucky, where he studied history. Following graduation from the UK College of Law, Kirk practiced law in Kentucky for eighteen years before launching a career as a professional genealogist. Kirk has more than thirty years of experience researching his family history in Kentucky and across the United States. Kirk continues the search for his predominantly English and Scots-Irish ancestry in courthouses, libraries, archives, churches and cemeteries across the state and throughout the Appalachian Mountains region in Virginia, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Kirk founded the "William Woosley Descendants Association" and facilitates its online community for those who claim as an ancestor this veteran of the American Revolution. Kirk is president of the Kentucky Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Fincastle Ancestry Research is named in honor of Kirk's native state's origin as a part of Fincastle County, Virginia.
