   What is the YukonGenWeb Project?
 
The YukonGenWeb Project site exists for the compilation and free dissemination of Yukon related genealogy and history resources, and is part of the CanadaGenWeb Project. The CanadaGenWeb is organized geographically. The national page links to the provincial and territorial pages which, in turn, link to the county (or regional) pages, where the majority of the genealogy data can be found.

CanadaGenWeb links by province: NT & NU | BC | AB | SK | MB | ON | QC | NB | PE | NS | NF

The CanadaGenWeb Project is based on the USGenWeb Project. In March and April of 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point on the Internet for all counties in Kentucky, where all 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.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases at the county level and generally oversee the contents of the web pages.

The same type of project now exists for every state in the U.S.A., as well as many countries around the World, including Canada. The CanadaGenWeb Project is modeled after the USGenWeb Project and our common goal is the collection and distribution of genealogical data on the Web.

Researchers of Canadian genealogy resources are very fortunate in that there is already an enormous amount of Canadian information available on the Internet. The role of the CanadaGenWeb and YukonGenWeb Projects is to assist researchers in locating this information, as well as to add to the existing online data.

The YukonGenWeb site was established in February, 1998 by J. Scott Wilson, who was responsible for the development and maintenance of the web site until October, 2006 -- thank you Scott.
