    About the NYGenWeb Project.

    A message was sent out over the GEN-NYS-L list in June 1996 asking if anyone would be interested starting a NYS GENWEB page similiar to a highly successful project underway in Kentucky. Many people expressed an interest in this idea. About the same time, Jeff Murphy, coordinator of the KYGENWEB, decided to go national with the idea, and out of that grew the USGENWEB project, and the NYGENWEB project.

    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. Contact the volunteer shown on the county page off the main New York page - https://www.nygenweb.net/ if you have a desire to add your data to the database.

    There were 406,936 visitors from 18 Nov 1996 - 27 Aug 2016 - thanks for stopping by!
