|How the ILGenWeb Started
In June, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Indiana Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more that one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, some volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. Eventually, this was expanded to all states and all counties across the US.
My name is Joe Markovich. I am the coordinator for the ILGenWeb Rock Island County Illinois web site. To volunteer to host an Illinois county contact the ILGenWeb state coordinator Dennis Partridge. I am also the coordinator for the ILGenWeb counties of Boone, Winnebago, McHenry, Mercer, Tazewell, Vermilion, Lake, Whiteside, Stephenson and Rock Island
