About the NYGenWeb Project
A message was sent out over the GEN-NYS-L mailing list in June of 1996, asking if anyone would be interested starting a NYGenWeb page similiar to a highly successful project underway in Kentucky. Many people expressed an interest in this idea. About the same time, Jeff Murphy, then coordinator of the KYGenWeb, decided to go national with the idea, and out of that grew the USGenWeb project, and the NYGenWeb project.
