About the Franklin County Vermont GenWeb
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 individuals 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.
I have found the GenWeb Project pages to provide great information for the genealogist. I encourage you to become involved with your county or town and assist in providing information to share with others.
