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 US GENWEB of which Minnesota is a part.
