and History Projects
Kentucky GenWeb Project
In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogist organized
the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy
Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky,where collected
databases would be stored. In addition, the database 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 and generally oversee the
contents of the web page. If you are interested in helping with any part of the KYGenWeb Project,
contact Sherri Bradley, State Coordinator for more information.
US GenWeb Project
June 1996, as the KyGenWeb Project was nearing 100% county coverage, interested
volunteers decided to create
a similar set of pages for all states, establishing The USGenWeb Project. Volunteers were found who were willing to
coordinate the efforts for each state, and additional volunteers were sought to create and maintain website for every
county in the United States.
Although The USGenWeb Project was originally designed to be organized by stateand county, much genealogy data
cannot be limited to a single county, or even a single state. So, USGenWeb Special Projects have evolved to collect
and disseminate data that goes beyond county and state lines.
The USGenWeb Project is still growing, and there are always opportunities for new volunteers to adopt county or
state pages or participate in a Special Project.
We welcome your interest and hope you find the efforts of our volunteers useful in your genealogy research.
