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.
are needed who are willing to coordinate the collection of databases and
generally oversee the contents of the web page.
