About the USGenWeb

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.

Although the basic unit of organization for The USGenWebProject 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 USGenWebProject are very proud of this endeavor and hope that you will find their hard work both beneficial and rewarding.
