County Coordinator Resources

In March and April, 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. This project became known as KYGenWeb.

New Beginning - The USGenWeb Project

In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion, it was decided to expand the project to include all states. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for each state page. If the state in which you are interested does not have a page and you wish to be responsible for it, please contact USGenWeb Coordinator. If you would like to contribute your data or create a county page within a given state, please contact the person responsible for maintaining your state page.

A Newer Beginning - The WorldGenWeb Project

Also in June, just 2 weeks or so after the beginning of The USGenWeb Project, the WorldGenWeb project was begun, and there are already several other countries involved in the project. Volunteers are still needed for many of the countries.

You may notice a message beside the county listing indicating it is available for adoption. This means that we are looking for someone to take it over on a permanent basis. If you would like to adopt a web page for one of these counties, please contact Shirley Cullum , State Coordinator.  The assistant state coordinators are Carla Clifton and Jane Keppler.
