About The USGenWeb Project
                               

In March and April of 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky
Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. 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.

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.

In April of 2001 I became the Sierra County coordinator and agreed to create and
maintain the website. I owe the original coordinator of Sierra County, Al Sánchez,
a big THANK YOU for obtaining the information for the easy
transfer to myself.  I am very much open to any and all suggestions & comments
about the website, and I encourage all those doing research in Sierra County
to become involved in the program. Your help will be most welcome.
