E-Mail Registry
This E-mail Registry program was started by Nancy Trice, former KyGenWeb State Coordinator
and one of the original members of the USGenWeb Project, with the following in mind:
  1. Many volunteers submit files to many different areas of the USGenWeb Project, USGenWeb Archives, WorldGenWeb, Tombstone Project, and other special projects.
  2. E-mail addresses change, sometimes frequently and sometimes suddenly, without warning and beyond your control.
  3. It has become difficult for us to keep up with changing the addresses, sometimes several times a year on numerous files for numerous people.
  4. Many of you have asked for a way to update your addresses globally.

You will need an email address for the Email Registration to communicate with you. This email address is specific to the email registration and is not visible on the future web page and is private to you.
