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 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 project of which Minnesota is
Volunteers are needed who are willing to coordinate the collection of databases
and generally oversee the contents of the web page. If you would like to
host a Minnesota county, contact the Minnesota state coordinator.
