OFFICIAL NOTICES AND DISCLAIMERS
History and Growth of the Michigan GenWeb Project
In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky
Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project, now known as the
GenWeb Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all
counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition,
the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual
were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.
At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate
the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web
page. This is an outgrowth of that original Kentucky project.
Adoption and Volunteering
Contact the coordinator
for the appropriate county if you have a desire to add your data to
the database. If the county in which you are interested does not
have a page, or appears to be up for adoption, and you wish to participate, please contact
Jan Cortez, the
Michigan Coordinator, and request the sample web page be sent to you.
