Zacatecas GenWeb Project is here! I haven’t been able to say a peep for the past few months and have been excited and busy getting the website ready, but now I can shout it out to the world!!!
Zacatecas GenWeb Project is here!
Back in the day, circa 1998/1999 when I first started my journey to find my dad’s people, I came across a website called Mexico GenWeb. Being a staunch supporter of small businesses and Small Business Saturday, I loved the concept of this site with its grass-roots beginnings, and as an all volunteer run site, Mexico GenWeb Project brings all of the available Mexican genealogical resources on one website. Making it available to the masses for free. It’s awesome that the same concept filters down to the many websites for the States of Mexico. Mexico GenWeb Project website was very useful with my early research and I learned a lot about the Mexican culture that the parents of this 2nd generation American never taught her.
How I became the Zacatecas GenWeb Project’s State Coordinator
As the years have gone by, I revisited the site 8-9 months ago and I was dismayed. The Mexican GenWeb website wasn’t updated or looked after. I was also bummed that only a handful of Mexican states had been adopted. When I checked on the State of Zacatecas, where my dad’s people are from, I found that it was up for adoption! I searched for the requirements for becoming a state coordinator and I made the decision to adopt the State of Zacatecas. After an arduous few months in getting access to the site and several months of researching Mexican genealogical resources; I have updated the site and I am proud to say that it is up and running.
Like I said earlier, any of the GenWeb projects; WorldGenWeb and USGenWeb, they are all run, maintained and updated by volunteers. These projects would not have been able to be brought to you without the wonderful help of volunteers. So, please take a look at the Zacatecas GenWeb Project and if you find a broken link, wrong information or know of a new resource, additional information, or anything that you feel might be useful to those who are doing Mexican genealogy research, please email the Zacatecas GenWeb Project’s webmaster and let her know.
