Speaker Profile: Joy Fisher
Joy was on the Kentucky (KY) mailing list when Jeff Murphy announced his small Muhlenberg County website and USGenWeb was born. She started websites for two KY counties soon after and has been part of USGenWeb ever since. She is the founder of SDGENWEB, the South Dakota state pages for USGenWeb, and maintains several county websites in Nevada, Florida, Illinois, South and North Dakota, as well as Los Angeles County in California.
Since its inception in 1996, Joy has been a part of the USGenWeb Archives. The Archives has steadily grown from a few text documents to more than 2 million text files and over 5 million photographs and document images. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joy Fisher will be presenting an Introduction to the USGenWeb Project. Learn about these all-volunteer managed, free websites accessible by county and state and the vast resources they have for the family history researcher.
