In March and April of 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point on the Internet for all counties in Kentucky, where all 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 at the County level and generally oversee the contents of the Web pages.
The same type of project now exists for every state in the U.S., as well as many countries around the World, including Canada. The Québec GenWeb Project was begun in 1998, and is modeled after the Canada GenWeb Project. Our common goal is the collection and distribution of genealogical data on the Web.
