"What Is the Migrations Project?"

Migrations is a stand alone project, developed by Patrick Hays, designed to further migrations research and develop a comprehensive database to assist genealogists in their endeavors. You do not need to be a state or county host to use the Migrations buttons, just click on one of the links to the Migrations Coding FAQ below.  We also have a Users FAQ.

"What are my responsibilities as a County host?"

1. To maintain a page and answer questions for people interested in submitting their Migrations Data. If you are unable to answer questions or have concerns, please refer them to your State Coordinator.

2. County Hosts will furnish updated links of Migratory information on their page, including the state Migrations page for their state. This will help researchers to find as many links to furnish as much information as possible.

3. Linking other pages that pertain to your County, including the USGenWeb Project, The American Local History Network (ALHN) and the American History & Genealogy Project (AHGP) as well as Migrations. If there is no county page for your site, then the state or national page for these projects will be linked.

4. Migrations graphics are available for use on your pages at the Migrations Coding FAQ page, if you wish to use them. Please use the button coding provided, but do feel free to create your own graphics, if that is your preference. For assistance in coding for the pages, please contact any state Coordinator.

"Where can I host my newly adopted county (or state)?"

I knew you were going to ask that, so I made up a whole page to answer this question! Click here to find your answer.

Migrations Button

"Who owns this data?"

If you provide it, you own it. If you request it to be removed, it will be. We hope, however, that you would never feel a need to remove material. Our only goal here is to provide the information needed to do research from home.

Migrations Button

"How do I make corrections?"

There are two ways to make corrections.  

1. Send your correction to Patrick Hays, I will try to get the correction made in a timely manner.

2. Submit the whole entry again with all corrected material, and put a short "Corrected entry" message at the top of the Additional Information Field.  When the entry is approved, it will completely replace the old entry.  Please make sure to include all applicable information.

For further information, please contact Patrick Hays
