Jim Burgess Thoughts May 23, 1999

Our computers and USGENWEB project gives family history researchers, genealogists and historians a unique opportunity to assist each other in Family History. It is my desire to make this a wonderful place for each of us to visit and exchange information about Fauquier County and our families who lived there. I need your HELP in this endeavor. If you can add to or correct information on this site please let me know. - Jim Burgess

Some of these projects are overwhelming. The 1850 Census Project, Place Names Project, Where they came from project, and others of your choice will benefit everyone.

Please understand that I cannot answer every email that is sent to me that require my doing your family research. I would love to do that; however, I would be taking the excitement and blessing away from you.
