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 is an outgrowth of that original Kentucky project.

The USGenWeb Project is a loosely organized group of volunteers working to create a center for genealogical research for every county in the United States. USGenWeb is not a commercial enterprise and information found on these pages is freely available to the public. It is also not a part of the original GenWeb. As you browse the pages, you will find some consistent elements. All counties will have an area for you to post queries and links to the state page and USGenWeb Archives. You will also see considerable variation; each page or database is the creation, property and responsibility of an individual volunteer. We are very proud of this project and hope that you are too. If you would like to help, please contact the state or county coordinator for the area that interests you.

If you have comments or questions about the USGenWeb Project please send them to the Project Coordinator.
