Proudly Serving Free Genealogy Resources for Over 25 Years

The USGenWeb Project ® was established in 1996 by a group of genealogists who shared a desire to create free online resources for genealogical research. Originally beginning with online directories of text-based resources, their vision has grown into a network of over 3000 linked websites, all individually created and maintained by a community of volunteers. Today you may find a variety of unique county and state resources including photos, maps, transcriptions, historical documents, helpful links, and much more.

Nationally Recognized

Check out USGenWeb in the Media to see our members in action through a variety of video and podcast channels. We are also very proud to be named one of Family Tree Magazine's 101 Best Websites since 2000, and mentioned as a recommended resource by the National Genealogical Society, Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, Family History Daily, The Frugal Genealogist's Guide, Ancestral Findings, and Education World.

No Registration Needed

All USGenWeb state and county sites are freely accessible to researchers. You will never be asked to register and login, or provide personally identifiable information to access and use our websites. Simply select a state from the drop-down menu at the top of this page to get started, and from there you will find state-level resources and links to each county site.
