2010 NCGenWeb in Review

Just a quick post to share our year in review highlight on the North Carolina USGenWeb project website.  I’ve now been webmaster for almost exactly one year!  The year-in-review highlights some of the milestones in the project this year and should we continue to keep it up, would be a great way to document some of the project history.

In other USGenWeb news:

  • for the NCGenWeb I created a database of more than 17,000 college graduates throughout North Carolina that focuses on 1930 and earlier. This summer I’ll be expanding it to up to 1940.
  • I’ve started a college graduate database for TNGenWeb too – hope to have that one publicly available by summers’ end
  • I’m the new assistant county coordinator for Hillsborough County, Florida
  • I am in the process of collaborating with another county coordinator on a site that is designed to promote the USGenWeb project and leverage social networking tools and applications.

My personal family history research has been on hiatus as I’ve been dedicating more efforts to the NCGenWeb project, but I have plans to remedy this soon enough.  I’ve had some exciting leads lately that I need to get around to fully documenting and blogging about.

I’m a USGenWeb cheerleader so remember, if you have family data that you’re blogging about – consider also contributing it to the appropriate USGenWeb county.

  1. Trying to contribute two transcribed wills to the Halifax Co site. The e-mails links don’t work; the US GenWeb link does not work. Having found nothing about submissions on the state web page, I have resorted to your blog as you are the webmaster.

    Please help.
