We’re coming up on the weekend, only two more days before the site goes ‘live’! And then I realized there’s no article to greet arrivals.

So here is the official ‘Hello World’ posting. Welcome to the new Franklin County ARGenWeb site! The ARGenWeb Project is a part of The USGenWeb Project, which is our national organization.

This site attempts to organize and coordinate online genealogy resources related to Franklin County in Arkansas. We host and maintain a range of data, such as cemetery surveys and documents, and we (try to) maintain links to current genealogical repositories on the internet.

With any luck we will also develop and maintain relationships with people and organizations who have similar interests. We are of course talking about genealogists, community organizations, societies, and so much more.

And by the way, my name is Wayne Saewyc, and I am the current Franklin County Coordinator. I am best contacted via e-mail.
