In 1785, the first group of Catholic settlers, mostly from Maryland, came to what are now Nelson, Washington and Marion counties in Kentucky.
Since 1990, Catholics with Maryland/Kentucky roots have gathered every other year to research and exchange information regarding their ancestry. Past reunions have taken place in Kentucky, Maryland and Missouri.
The 2008 Maryland to Kentucky Reunion is scheduled for this weekend at St. Thomas Parish, 870 St. Thomas Lane in Bardstown.
This year's reunion includes 660 registrants from 34 states.
