In March and April 1996, a group of genealogists organized the KentuckyGenWeb Project.  The idea was to provide a single entry point for genealogy data and research for all counties in Kentucky.  Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web pages for each county in Kentucky.  As the Kentucky project neared completion it was decided to create a similar set of pages for all states, establishing the USGenWeb Project. The MNGenWeb is part of the USGenWeb Project.

For those researching your emigrant ancestors, please visit The WorldGenWeb Project where you will find genealogical information for all regions within every country in the world.
