History of the US Gen Web Project

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. 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. The idea spread across the county, and the US Gen Web project was born.

If you feel, as I do, that the US Gen Web Project has been a smashing success, you will appreciate the enormous effort it took, by thousands of volunteers, to reach this point.   And it could not have been possible without YOU.

You are the reason this project exists, and you are crucial to it's success. You are the folks who are spending months and years researching within the counties. You accumulate the knowledge, information, and resources.

My job is to put these pages online, to expand them, and to maintain them to the best of my ability, and it's a pleasure and joy to do so.  But pretty pages aren't enough - we need CONTENT

If you feel you have any little thing that you would like to contribute to Hampden County, MA, or to ANY US Gen Web county around the country, or if you have a question, please consider taking a few minutes to drop a line.

Thank You!
