The USGenWeb Project
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.
the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the
collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
June, as the Kentucky project was nearing completion, it was decided to
a page for each of the remaining states, and as with the Kentucky project, volunteers
were found to host the state pages.
In November of 2004 I became the Torrance County coordinator
and agreed to
maintain the website. I owe the original coordinator of Torrance County, edwina George Hewett,
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 Torrance County
to become involved in the program. Your help will be most welcome.
Thanks to Art Michaelis who created the NMGenWeb Project logo.
