Volunteer Information

What is the AKGenWeb Project?

We are a section of the USGenWeb Project. We follow their guidelines but deal with Alaska only. The State Coordinator maintains a home page with a list of the Boroughs and Census Areas along with general information for historical and genealogical researchers in Alaska. The home page has a link to each adopted Borough/Census Area.

What is required to adopt a Borough/Census Area?

You should have an interest in history and genealogy and a willingness to learn more about your Borough/Census Area. You should have some understanding of html and the ability to create and maintain web pages.

Do I need any special programs or equipment?

No, there are no requirements for the programs you use. You will need an html editor, for example: Expression Web (free), Dreamweaver, Coffee Cup, or any other editor. You can hand-code with notepad, but you wouldn't be asking this question if you knew how to do that!!!

Are there any other costs involved?

No. You can host your Borough site for free on Rootsweb, Rootsquest, the AKGenWeb or other genealogy sites.

How can I get started?

Contact the AKGenWeb Coordinator! We'd love to have you!
