The American History & Genealogy Project (AHGP) is very similar to the USGenWeb and Genealogy Trails sites. Essentially, it is a collection of independent, state-based websites with a multitude of information in several genealogical categories.
From the website: “Welcome to the Home of the American History and Genealogy Project (AHGP), an unincorporated network of independent Web Sites devoted to History and Genealogy and covering North American Countries and Territories. Anyone with a genealogy, history or related project or topic sites are welcome to join.”
The site also has several special projects. Here is a subset of them:
- AHGP Census Project
- AHGP Cemetery Project
- AHGP’s Civil War Project
- AHGP’s Native American Project
- AHGP’s Obituary Resource Center
- AHGP’s Family Group Sheet Project
- Military Forts by State
- Gazetteers, Directories, Post Offices, and More
Like other aggregation sites, this site should be visited for your state of interest and genealogy category. There may be something on this site that is unique and useful in your own research.
