The MNGenWeb Project
In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists
organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide
a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases

every country in the world represented and hosted by hosts who either live
in that country or are familiar with that countries
