Welcome to the Clark County WIGenWeb Project

My name is Judy Groh and I have been the host since June 2005.. This site is part of the WIGenWeb project, which is part of the larger USGenWeb project. The purpose of this site is to provide free information useful in researching the genealogies and histories of families that have lived in Clark County.. Included is information on sources, libraries and archives, and, whenever possible, online indexes and transcriptions of source material or scans of original documents. If you have an interest in contributing material to this site contact me by email. Enjoy your visit!

Clark County was created in 1853. There are presently 33 towns in Clark County. Thirty-two towns are of standard size of a township..each covering six miles by six miles. The Town of Foster includes two townships. The County seat is Neillsville.  

A Brief History of Clark County, Wisconsin and a Clark County Town Name Origins have been written and contributed to this site by Kay Scholtz

Counties that border Clark County are Chippewa, Eau Claire, Jackson, Marathon, Taylor and Wood.

The USGenWeb Project began in the spring of 1996 with a group of genealogists in Kentucky with an interest in providing free genealogical data to the public The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties, where collected databases would be stored. In addition to collecting these databases, other resources were to be made available including information on genealogical societies, posted queries, maps, and other aids. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web sites. The concept quickly spread from Kentucky to other states and within a few months, the USGenWeb Project was born.

WIGenWeb has a state-level site maintained by State Coordinator Tina Vickery and Assistant State Coordinator Marcia Ann Kuehl. Likewise, each county has a coordinator who is responsible for providing assistance and maintaining a website of information for that specific county. Some counties are available for adoption, and assistance is always needed in transcribing, locating, and preparing data for the WIGENWEB Archives. If you'd like to volunteer to assist in the WIGENWEB project, or you are a new volunteer, please contact the state coordinator.
