The mission of this project is to coordinate a United States census
transcription effort by recruiting, guiding, and helping volunteer transcribers. Our goal is to provide free access to
Online Research Data for everyone.
Each transcription will bear the transcriber's
copyright and will be housed in the Census On-Line Inventory.
It's an ambitious project and we invite you to join us!

This transcription project was named The USGenWeb
Census Project in 1998 in accordance to the then newly adopted
USGenWeb Project Bylaws. Previously
it had been known as the "Archives" Census Project.
