About the WIGenWeb Project
In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion, it was decided to create this page for all states, establishing the USGenWeb Project. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for a state page. If you would like to contribute your data or create a county page within a given state, please contact the person responsible for maintaining that state's page. If you would like to volunteer in any way to help with this site contact the State Coordinator, Tina Vickery.
