The USGenWeb Project

“This is the home page for The USGenWeb Project. We are a group of volunteers working together to provide Internet websites for genealogical research in every county and every state of the United States.”

Well their introduction tells you who they are and what they are doing, I can’t argue with that. So let’s check this site out. Here you can choose the state you live in and then the county. To do that, you can either select your state from the list on the left, or click on the States button at the top of the page.

If you click the States button, you then have the option of choosing your state by map, alphabetical order, or text only. For fun I chose to use the map. Then went ahead and roamed around my state’s page.

There seemed to be a lot of information for most of the states, but you’ll find information for your county on it too. State information is broken down by category with buttons at the top of the page for each category. For example, if you click the County Resources button, you can then select from the list of counties that appears. After choosing your county, you’ll be bombarded with information about it.

Now you’ll learn your county’s history, and get links to tons of things that are in your county; like birth records, death records, and much more than that. The information is very useful to people doing Family Trees, or tracing their roots with genealogy searches.

Have a lot of fun with this one!
