About USGenWeb & CAGenWeb

The USGenWeb Project is a group of volunteers working together and having fun providing free online genealogy help and information for every U.S. state and county. Our national site provides links to state sites, which, in turn, provide gateways to the counties. We also sponsor important Special Projects, gathering useful data you can access for free. You'll see variation in site style and content across our many web sites. It shows the wonderful diversity of our volunteers!
