If you are looking at the 1870 census for LqP County it is this earlier one which is now part of Stevens, Swift, and Chippewa counties.

- 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 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 lead to the USGenWeb of which Minnesota is a part.
- Volunteers are needed who are willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
- You are our 146871 visitor since 8 March 1997 -- thanks for stopping by!
