What is the USGenWeb Archives Project?

 The USGenWeb Archives Project began as the result of a group of people deciding that it was "time to do something" on the Internet about genealogical research. Something beyond making a connection with others working on the same surname. Beyond the thousands of homepages that list links, gedcoms, or an index for printed books or documents. 

  It is time to do something to get those valuable documents ONLINE.. accessible to anyone with a computer and modem. 

  The word went out. Volunteers were recruited to either donate their existing transcribed documents, or to actually commit to transcribing data, such as census records, marriage bonds, wills, etc. This project will also help preserve the information stored in musty old courthouse basements and attics on fading, crumbling paper. 

Types of files for the Archives include: 

Federal Census (free, slave, mortality, agriculture, veterans schedules...)
State Census
 Vital Records including:
Court records (county, federal, civil, circuit, probate....)
Church records (members lists, baptisms...)
Bible Records
 Newspapers (obits, marriage & birth announcements, local events...)
Prison Records (got some proven moonshiners in your tree?)
Military Records (rosters, muster rolls, service records, pension applications...) for the following wars:
 Civil War
Indian Wars 
War of 1812 
Viet Nam 
Persian Gulf
Land Records (deeds, land transfers, federal land grants, surveyor's records...) 
Tax Records (land, property, state, federal, local....) 
Local Histories
Local Directories (phone books, old county and city directories....)
Occupational (Mining inspector's reports, Accident reports, railroad reports, company newsletters....)
Educational (school histories, newsletters, school census, yearbooks)
Ship Lists 
Tax lists 

 Files are stored in the USGenWeb Archives in ascii text format. If you would like to help the archivists get the data uploaded faster, please visit the TIPS Page for instructions on converting various formats to text.   New items are always welcome and you get the credit for the data that you contribute.
