USGenWeb Counties that are up for adoption and need Volunteer Coordinators!! Are you able to do a basic website? Why not take the time to coordinate a county. It really doesn't take that much of your time and it will help others and also help you in your research. The one advantage that these counties have as opposed to the larger websites is that they are FREE and many times they contain information that the larger websites don't have. Think about it become a member of the USGenWeb. You'll be glad you did!

About the Michigan GenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Michigan GenWeb. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all Michigan counties, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.

This site is part of the USGenWeb Project. Created, hosted and maintained by Jan Cortez. If you would like to volunteer for a county, please contact State Coordinator, the MIGenWeb Coordinator.
