WorldGenWeb Review


You will want to begin your search by exploring the Country Websites.  You may discover that one of the countries is in need of a coordinator.   If you are interested in adopting one of the countries, please contact us.

Each of the countries has a query board for submitting queries so you'll want to utilize the country specific query board if available.

In many cases you might not know which country your ancestor was from.  We have created a general Africa Query board to assist you.  Click here to visit the General Africa Query Board.


The AfricaGenWeb Project is in need of volunteers to host country pages, provide look-up resources, transcribe data, etc...

If you might be interested in volunteering, please stop by the Policies page to learn more about what is required.
