About The USGenWeb Project
In March and April of 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.

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.

In June, as the Kentucky project was nearing completion, it was decided to start a page for each of the remaining states, and as with the Kentucky project, volunteers were found to host the state pages.

In April of 2000 I became the Valencia County coordinator and agreed to create and maintain the website. I owe the original coordinator of Valencia County, Jo Fox, a big THANK YOU for obtaining the information for the easy transfer to myself.  I am very much open to any and all suggestions & comments about the website, and I encourage all those doing research in Valencia County to become involved in the program. Your help will be most welcome.
