About the USGenWeb Project
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.
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. Contact the volunteer shown on the county page if you have a desire to add your data to the database. If the county in which you are interested does not have a page and/or you wish to participate in some way, please contact the State Coordinator.
You may notice a message beside the county listing indicating it is available for adoption. This means that while we have created the county page, we are now looking for someone to take it over. If you would like to adopt a web page for one of these counties, please contact the current owner of the page, whose name is listed at the bottom of their county page, or the State Coordinator.
