The USGenWeb Project is beginning its 17th year of providing free online genealogical help. We are an organization of about 2,200 volunteers maintaining websites. Thousands of others have volunteered their time to transcribe old records, walk cemeteries (often taking photos of gravestones) and share family information.
We have websites for every state in the US and for every county (including many extinct counties) and many special projects such as:
- USGenWeb Archives
- USGenWeb African American Griots Project
- USGenWeb Tombstone Transcription Project
- USGW Digital Map Library
As an all-volunteer organization, we are in constant need of new volunteers to transcribe materials walk cemeteries near your home, or maintain web sites (experience is helpful, but not needed - we train you).
