Short About

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 create this page for all states. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for each state page.

Juab County is a proud part of the UTGenWeb Project, and USGenWeb Project. You can Learn more About Us. If Juab County is not the County your looking for look at The UTGenWeb County Selection Page.
