Volunteers Are Needed

Township Coordinators

We still need several township coordinators to help with our site. If you have an interest in a particular township, please email me with details. We need folks to help maintain webpages, add graphics, photos, descendant charts, etc.

File Donations

Everything on this site has been graciously transcribed and donated for use on this website by visiting researchers. We would not exist (well not as well as we do now!) without YOUR help! If you have family from this county, please consider donating your family information to us so that we can pass it along to others. We welcome any and all donations -- but are specificially looking for the following:

Census Schedules - 1790 to 1920 (by Township)
Cemetery Records
Wills and Letters of Administration
Bible Records
Biographical Sketches of Somerset Families
Descendant Trees and Charts
History by county or township
Tombstone Photographs
Obituary Notices
Marriage Records
Church Records

and anything that might be of interest to another researcher.

What to Send and Where to Send It

You may send any materials directly to us. Text files attached to an email work best. If you do not know how to send an attachment, then cut and paste the text into the email and send it that way. Records that are in columns should be sent to me in a spreadheet (.xls or .123) so that I can easily convert them to html. Directories, locators, etc., can be sent as a database (dbase) or a text-delimited file (spaced with either tabs or pipes). I can open most anything so long as it has a fairly known file type. If you are unsure about the file extension, email me first.

You may also send files to a township coordinator -- if the township is hosted. Please email the coordinator and ask what they prefer.

Either way, I will see that your files get online.

Where Will It Go Online?

Currently, we are putting everything online in our home directory. I prefer it this way as I like to be able to have my search engine read the files. I can place the files in the USGW archives for this county...and if that is what you prefer, please state that on the email. At some point in time, I will have copies of everything on this site in the archives - but for now the time frame for that happening is unknown.
