USGenWeb Is 18 Years Old!

Welcome to The USGenWeb Project! We are a group of volunteers working together to provide free genealogy websites for genealogical research in every county and every state of the United States. This Project is non-commercial and fully committed to free genealogy access for everyone.

I've known about USGenWeb for almost as long as I've used the Internet.  As a blast from the past, here is a snapshot of the website in December 1996.  As someone with a huge American colonial ancestry I've found bits and pieces of my family history from this site over the years, and I'm so grateful to the innumerable volunteers who have tirelessly added the information.  I'm spoiled to have access to quite a few subscription databases, and I wanted to give a big Thank You to everyone involved in this free resource.  The massive amount of information provided voluntarily is a real testament to the generous spirit of the genealogical community.
