The American History & Genealogy Project is a group of independent webmasters linking together to share historical and genealogical data with researchers online. Please join us -- there are many counties and topics to be explored! Our most pressing need in Virginia right now is someone to adopt each county. If you would like to become a volunteer county coordinator, or have information or data you would like to donate, please contact the State Coordinator for Virginia AHGP or click on the adopt me link for the county.
