GAGenWeb Project Blog

GAGenWeb Project Blog » Email county Mailing List: "Sometimes we assume that everyone knows about their County Mailing List (many of them are through Rootsweb), but I wanted to speak about how helpful the County List can be for letting everyone know about your pages, your work, as well as be a valuable resource for researchers in the county itself.

I’ve always found that most people don’t really know that we want people to contribute their data. Sure we say this on our pages, but so often, people are timid and don’t think this means them. They may think their family really isn’t of interest to others — when in fact, everyone’s family helped to shape the county in one way or another."

This blog is mostly for the use of the GAGenWeb Project team — the County Coordinators, Regional Coordinators, the Associate State Coordinator, and the State Coordinator. We will be posting information regarding our interaction with the USGenWeb Project, resources for County Coordinators, and other helpful data.

  • Genealogy Resources posting section has been launched by Linda Woodward Geiger. This would be a great place for Coordinators to share ideas for collecting site data and challenges encountered in doing so.
  • Memorials section will be for us to honor those colleagues in the project who have passed.
  • Web Technology area will be for introductions to new technologies that might make our jobs easier and more
The GAGenWeb Project at Rootsweb: "the official home page for GAGenWeb Project. We are a group of volunteers working together to provide Internet websites for genealogical research in every county in the State of Georgia. This Project is non-commercial and fully committed to free access for everyone. To learn more about our parent organization, the USGenWeb Project, visit their website linked here on our pages.

GAGenWeb Project members are located throughout the world, not just in Georgia. We rely on the resources of the Internet and on volunteers who are able to transcribe primary documents to assist us in getting information online."
