Query: My Grandmother passed away a year and a half ago, and I realized I know very little of her/my family history. Any help will be greatly appriceated. 
My Grandma was born, 
Myrtle Scott, in 1905,(may or may not have been in Scott county.) 
She married Charles Binns in Scott City. 
I do not know the year, but guessing by their oldest childs age, it would have probably been in the early 20's. 
I know that all ten of her childeren were born in Scott County, And that at least from the time of her marriage, untill her death in Oct. 1997, She did live in Scott City. 
I am ashamed to say, that is all I know about my Grandma's history, if you can help me find out more, I thank you in advance. 
Also.. My Grandma had a book, It was called,(I think) The History of Scott County. 
It had a lot of family history in it, including information about, I believe, my Grandfathers family.(Binns) I spent a lot of time as a child, looking through this book, unfortunatly, I was looking at what I called then,pictures of the funny people, in the funny old clothes, with the strange hair... who NEVER smiled, not even the children. 
I wish now, I had spent time reading the histories in the book, instead of just looking at the pictures. I was told that there were a limited number of these books published, but would like to find one if possible. Any help you can give me on locating a copy of this book will be apriceated, and I thank you in advance.
