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
genealogical information for all regions within every country in the world.
