About This Site

What We Do

This site provides free resources, data, and assistance to those with local and family history interests in Jefferson County.

The Jefferson County Genealogy & History Web site is committed to providing free access to all available on-line resources for Jefferson County researchers.  This project is constantly looking for new resources that can be placed on-line, but in order to do that, we need volunteers.

"How can you be part of this fantastic opportunity?" you ask.  We have ways <wink>.

Below we've listed just a few of the projects with which you could be involved.  Maybe you've got an idea for a making other records available on this site, or you are interested in working on one of these projects.  Whatever your interest, please e-mail the Webmistress using the Contact Us link in the menu.

Abstracting Old E-Mail Messages

Right now, we need someone(s) to go through old postings to e-mail discussion lists and message boards to find Web site links, resources, and similar items that should be linked from here.  We'll send you the files by e-mail, along with instructions on how to accomplish the review and return the items you select.  We also have several messages posted to an old message board system that need to be reviewed and, if not on the current queries board, input.

19th Century Newspaper Indexing

We hope to put an every-name index to existing Jefferson County newspapers on-line as a searchable database.  We can provide you with photocopies of newspapers from which to work.  You need to have access to a spreadsheet program or know how to use tables in a wordprocessor.

Census Transcriptions

Volunteers are needed to transcribe 1860 and 1870 federal census records.  The USGenWeb Census Project is sponsoring this activity.

Cemetery Transcriptions

Even though the cemeteries in Jefferson County have been transcribed and published, we can't type directly from those volumes.  In order to qualify for this site, transcriptions must be original work.  Have you transcribed one of the cemeteries in the county?  Do you live in the county and are willing to do a transcription?

Church Records Transcriptions

Have you transcribed records from any of the churches in the county?  Do you live in the county and are willing to do a transcription?  Do you have access to microfilmed records through your local library's interlibrary loan department or the LDS Family History Centre nearest you?  Even partial transcriptions (i. e., all entries for a surname, or all entries for a specific time period) are helpful.

Personal Communications Transcriptions

Did your ancestors leave letters, diaries, or memoirs you can transcribe?

Historic Photographs

Do you have photos of buildings, locations, or events that would be of interest to other researchers?
