About the WIGenWeb Project
In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion,
it was decided to create this page for all states, establishing the USGenWeb Project.
Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages
for a state page. If you would like to contribute your data or create a county page
within a given state, please contact the person responsible for maintaining that
state's page. If you would like to volunteer in any way to help with this site contact
About the USGenWeb Project
In the spring of 1996, a group of genealogists with
mutual interests in Kentucky genealogy got together and discussed ways and means
of using the internet for comprehensive genealogical resources. This resulted in
a project to build web sites for every county in Kentucky. This idea quickly spread
to other states and by the end of the summer of 1996, the USGenweb Project was born.
