I am Darlene Anderson, county coordinator for the Wayne County INGenWeb Project web site. I am glad you stopped by for a visit and I hope you come back to visit often! This web site is going through a major overhaul, so if you visit a page that isn't working properly please send me a message by clicking "contact" below.
The Wayne County INGenWeb Project was established for the goal of sharing genealogical and historical information to benefit all who have ancestors that live or have passed through this county. There are many volunteers and contributors who have donated much of the worthwhile information that is available on this web site. I would like to thank all of the previous county coordinators for their contributions to the Wayne County INGenWeb Project! And, I would like to continue with the primary purpose of providing worthwhile genealogical and historical data for all who are interested in this county. Please read the volunteer page for information about how you can help with our purpose and goals for the Wayne County INGenWeb Project web site.
INGenWeb's HistoryIn March or April of 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Indiana Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Indiana, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they would be located in the index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. If you are interested in becoming the county coordinator for an Indiana county, contact the INGenWeb State Coordinator by clicking on her name, Denise Wells.
