Keeping Free Genealogy on the Web

20th Anniversary Proudly Serving Free Genealogy Resources for 25 Years

The USGenWeb Project ® was established in 1996 by a group of genealogists who shared a desire to develop totally free online resources for genealogical research. Originally beginning with online directories of text-based resources, their vision has actually grown into a network of over 3000 connected sites, all individually produced and preserved by a neighborhood of volunteers. Today you might find a range of unique county and state resources consisting of photos, maps, transcriptions, historical documents, helpful links, and much more.

Nationally Acknowledged

The USGenWeb Job has been voted as Ancestral tree Magazine’s 101 Best Sites every year given that 2000. You will also find our Project discussed as a recommended resource by the National Genealogical Society, Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter, Household History Daily,
The Penny-wise Genealogist’s Guide, Ancestral Findings, Education World, podcasts, and other genealogical channels.

No Registration Needed

All USGenWeb state and county sites are easily accessible to scientists. You will never ever be asked to sign up and login, or offer personally identifiable details to gain access to and use our sites. Simply select a state from the drop-down menu at the top of this page to get going,
and from there you will discover state-level resources and links to each county website.
