The USGenWeb Project consists of a group
of volunteers working together to provide
Internet websites for genealogical research
in every county and every state of the
United States. The Project is non-commercial
and fully committed to free access for
everyone. Organization is by county and
state, and this website provides you with
links to all the state websites which, in
turn, provide gateways to the counties. The
USGenWeb Project also sponsors important
Special Projects at the national level and
this website provides an entry point to all
of those pages, as well.
the basic unit of organization for The
USGenWeb Project is at the county level,
State Websites include very important
information as well, including such
resources for postings of unknown county
queries, family reunion bulletin boards,
state histories, and maps showing the
changing county boundaries, among others.
Many states also have ongoing projects as
diverse as the transcription of Civil War
regiments or the reuniting of families with
lost photos, bibles, etc.
As you explore the
state and county websites, you will see
considerable variation as each page or
database is the creation, property and
responsibility of an individual volunteer.
But, you will also find that all of the
counties will provide links for you to post
queries, access the state's home page and
access the archives. All of the volunteers
who make up The USGenWeb Project are very
proud of this endeavor and hope that you
will find their hard work both beneficial
The goal of the
USGenWeb Project is to make genealogical
information available online. These are
stored at the
USGenWeb Archives. You can
