"Can I adopt a Town or Township instead of a County?"
YES! If covering an entire County is difficult for you because of time and resources, adopting a town in that County is a great idea. We're happy to have volunteers at a County level. We would be happy to have volunteers who prefer to cover a topic in a township too, such as religion, history, cemeteries, occupations, etc. We can easily link your page to the County it falls under. Many researchers have a great knowledge of the specific area their ancestors lived in. This is a wonderful way to help. Just email us and let us know what area you would be interested in covering and we'll get you added.
"I am unable to adopt a Township. Are there other ways I can help?"
Yes!! If you would like to
volunteer to do any of the following, we'd love to have you on our team. By submitting the
data you have collected in your research, or placing it online for linking, you can be a
huge help to others who may be researching the same families or the same areas. You can
submit information to the State host or your County host.

"Where do I place my pages? Does it cost me anything?"
You are free to place your pages anywhere you want them. Free space has generously been provided by USGennet.org for any page related to LHN.
"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.
