The KYGenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. This project became known as KYGENWEB.

The USGenWeb Project

In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion, it was decided to expand the project to include all states. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for each state page. If the state in which you are interested does not have a page and you wish to be responsible for it, or if you would like to contribute your data or create a county page within a given state, please contact the person responsible for maintaining your state page. If you would like to create a county page within a given state, please contact the person responsible for maintaining your state page (see USGenWeb for names and addresses)

The WorldGenWeb Project

Also in June, just 2 weeks or so after the beginning of The US GenWeb project, the WorldGenWeb project was begun, and there are already several other countries involved in the project. Volunteers are still needed for many of the countries. If you are interested in hosting a country, please visit the WorldGenWeb Project for details.

The USGenWeb Archives

The USGenWeb Archive was developed and implemented in July 1996, as a place to present actual transcriptions of public domain records on the Internet. This huge undertaking is the cooperative effort of volunteers who either have electronically formatted files on census records, marriage bonds, wills, and other public documents, or are willing to transcribe this information to contribute. If you have anything to contribute, please contact the person listed on the State Table of Contents page. Please read the Guidelines for file contributions before submitting records.
