My volunteer activities with the national USGenWeb Project brings me great satisfaction as, through it, I am able to help others in their genealogy research. If you are not familiar with the project, through the generous time donations of hundreds of volunteers, we have websites with free genealogy resources for all 3,000+ counties in the country.
I am most involved with the Tennessee and North Carolina groups (TNGenWeb and NCGenWeb respectively), but do have a few counties in other states. Last week, I was ecstatic to be able to adopt two more counties in Kentucky – including the site or Jefferson County, where Louisville is located.
I was so tickled to then find this shirt at the store the very next day so I had to get it to give my props to Muhammad Ali who was from Louisville.
I don’t have family roots to Louisville (though Kalonji did live in the area for several years), but I am excited about learning more about the city’s rich history. I have started the process of redesigning the website, so here’s a sneak peek. If you have any roots in the area, let me know!
