The MN GenWeb Project
In July 1996, the page for Minnesota GenWeb was started. We are proud to be a part of the USGenWeb project, which is an effort to organize genealogical materials on the Internet. Our goal is to provide a web site specializing in genealogy in Minnesota with an emphasis on the county level. Our project's success is only possible through the support of volunteers.
My name is Jan Sedore, and I am the person responsible for Douglas County. If you would like to contribute your information to this page or volunteer to help others with their research by doing lookups, please let me know. If you would like to host a county, contact the Minnesota State Coordinator MNGenWeb Project
