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.

In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion, it was decided to extend the project to all states. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for each state page. Now the project has gone worldwide.

This page is part of the New York Gen-Web, the USGenWeb Project and the World Gen-Web. There is no doubt that this is the fastest growing genealogy project ever. Keep checking on the Web for your area of interest. More sources are available every day.

The coordinator for the USGenWeb Project is Megan Zurawicz (as of September 1, 1997). The coordinator for the NY State Project is Kim Harris Myers.
