Website: The USGenWeb Project

Over the years, The USGenWeb Project has received numerous awards as one of the 'Key' Internet Genealogy Free Websites.

There are a few other wonderful things about this site that make it amazing and that is there is a section for Projects, Researchers and Volunteers. Each section provides tips on getting started and wonderful aids to help all. Here is part of their projects lists:

The USGenWeb Archives Project
The USGenWeb African American Griots Project
The USGenWeb Kidz Project
The USGenWeb Lineage Project
The USGenWeb Tombstone Transcription Project

These sites are the representation of millions of hours of work to bring these resources to genealogists and family historians around the world, remember as you use these resources to pay it forward by citing sources properly and giving recognition of where the information comes from properly.
