USGenWeb, Exhibitor at Family History Day
Please welcome the USGenWeb as an exhibitor at Family History Day at the California State Archives.
The USGenWeb Project is beginning its 16th year of providing free on-line genealogical help. We are an organization of about 2,200 volunteers maintaining web sites.

We have websites for every state in the US and for every county (including many extinct counties) and many special projects such as:
Visit our exhibit at Family History Day to learn more about us and obtain brochures about our services from our California branch (CAGenWeb) members. Computers will be set up to demonstrate how to look up data on your family.
As an all-vounteer organization, we are in constant need of new volunteers to transcribe materials walk cemeteries near your home, or maintain web sites (experience is helpful, but not needed - we train you).
