The USGenWeb Census Project

Mission Statement

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!
