Types of County Page

  • Every page may provide a free query page. This can be handled either with a form and posted automatically, or with E-mail to the page owner and updated manually.

  • Every county may provide for reference lookups. You may list whatever resources you have in your personal library, offering to do lookups in them. You should provide a place on the lookup pages where other volunteers could, if they wish, volunteer to do look ups. You might also list other books that have been published on your county and ask for others that have these books to volunteer to do lookups.

  • If you have not already done so, you need to join the mailing list for the state. This is where we discuss all matters having to do with the MO-AHGP project.

Duties of a County Coordinator

  • There are a few basic duties that every county coordinator must do in order to be responsible for a county page in this project. The Duties are:

      1. You need to create a main county Web page, a query page, and a lookup page. If these pages already exist you would modify the existing pages. These pages must meet the Requirements listed above.

      2. You don't need to understand how to set up Web pages, we can help you with that aspect of the project. Once you become a coordinator we can give you more details on HTML editing.

      3. You would be responsible for adding query requests to the county query page. These requests come from your query page, by e-mail

      4. You would maintain a lookup page for reference lookups. If you like, you may list whatever resources you have in your personal library, offering to do lookups in them. You should provide a place on the lookup pages where other volunteers could, if they wish, volunteer to do look ups. You might also list other books that have been published on your county and ask for others that have these books to volunteer to do lookups.

      5. If you have not already done so, you need to join the mailing list for the state. This is where we discuss all matters having to do with the project.

Welcome to the MO-AHGP help sites

  • As new county pages are put up on the web, they are checked for the required elements and to be sure your links work. If there are any problems with links or any required elements missing, they will let you know so you may make any changes or corrections. Post a message to your state mail list when you are ready for your page to be checked.

  • It is the policy of the AHGP Project to obtain permission from the creator of any code, graphics, and backgrounds before using them on our pages. If you find yourself having used someone's code without their permission, please either obtain that permission or remove that feature from your pages.

Misc County Page Requirements

  1. Links to your personal family sites is encouraged, provided there is a county tie to the family [ies], some webmasters maintain a list of family surnames pages with ties to the county.

  2. If you would be interested in hosting a town or city site, rather than a county site, contact me
    If you want to do a town site, and there is not a county site being maintained,
    we will get a county or city page established.
    NOTE:All of the above rules would still apply.
