Keeping Free Genealogy on the Internet
We're happy that you've found us here on the Internet.
The USGenWeb Project is a group of volunteers working together and having fun providing free online genealogy help and information for every U.S. state and county. Our national site provides links to state sites, which, in turn, provide gateways to the counties. We also sponsor important Special Projects, gathering useful data you can access for free. I'm proud of the variation you'll see in site style and content across our many web sites. It shows the wonderful diversity of our volunteers!
USGenWeb was established in 1996 by a group of genealogists who shared a desire to create online centers for genealogical research. Each of our literally thousands of web sites have been created and are maintained by volunteers. Some of the offerings you're likely to see in these diverse and creative sites include query boards, listings of local sources for records, county and state histories, online genealogy books, research tips, maps, and links to helpful internet resources. You'll even find transcribed records online, accessible for free from the comfort of your home. Our Special Projects, such as the nationally-recognized Tombstone Project, assist in the effort to gather these record transcriptions. The USGenWeb Archives are a major repository of data, which is provided by helpful contributors - people just like you!
We at The USGenWeb Project take great pride in our work, and we hope you find it useful as you search for your ancestors.
Please enjoy the many sites that make up The USGenWeb Project and the labors of the all-volunteer crew that make it possible. Should you find a bad link or error, please notify the page owner; if you find a major problem, please let me know.
