The Wisconsin GenWeb Project (WIGenWeb)
In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. 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 lead to the USGenWeb of which Wisconsin is a part.
Volunteers are needed who are willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
My name is Dick Balza and I am the person responsible for Brown County pages. If you would like to contribute your information (Your Surnames, Volunteer to do lookups) I will be glad to add them to these pages, please let me know. I would like to see lots of volunteers to do lookups. I'll list you on my lookup page if you own resources and would be willing to help others via email or US mail.
