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.
