In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.
The Idaho GenWeb Project is an extension of the KY GenWeb Project.
Latah county was established May 14, 1888, with its county seat at Moscow.
This area was first formed as "Lah-Toh" county in 1864 with Coeur d'Alene as the county seat, in 1867 the name "Lah-Toh" was dropped when the area became part of Nez Perce County.
The present day county is approximately 1,077 sqaure miles of land and was the 16th Idaho county created. It was named for Latah Creek, which drains the northwest corner.
Latah is derived from the Nez Perce words "Lah" that means the place of pine trees, and "Toh" sestle, because the Indians found stones here suitable for pulverizing camas roots and shade under the pine trees in which to work.
