At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
In June, as the Kentucky project was nearing completion, it was decided to start a page for each of the remaining states, and as with the Kentucky project, volunteers were found to host the state pages. If the state in which you are interested does not have a page and you wish to be responsible for it, or if you would like to contribute your data or create a county page within a given state, contact the person responsible for maintaining that state and/or county.
This website is dedicated to the memory of my Grandpa, who spent his life working and loving the land
of Keith County.

Volunteer Coodinator, Lancaster County, Nebraska Volunteer Coordinator
On behalf of myself and all the volunteers of Keith County NEGenWeb,
I wish to extend both our heartfelt sympathy and deepest gratitude to the
family of Captain Ford. We will remember your sacrifice and strive to be worthy.
We cannot know your loss, but we grieve with you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his brethren (John 15:13)
