Welcome to Grand County!


In March and April of 1996 a group of genealogists got together and organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. Their 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.
Volunteers were then found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of these county web pages.

In June of 1996, as the Kentucky project was nearing completion, the concept came about to extend this idea to each of the remaining states. As with the Kentucky project, volunteers were found to host the state pages and USGenWeb was launched. The USGenWeb Project is now a national organization helping to keep all the sites interconnected and with relative uniformity. Since its inception, the project has and will maintain one central idea: an area for FREE collection and dissemination of data.

Grand County

When Grand County was created 2 February, 1874 it was carved out of Summit County and contained land to the western border of the state which is now in present day Moffat and Routt counties. In 1877 Routt County was created and Grand County shrunk down to its current western boundary. When valuable minerals were found in North Park, Grand County claimed the area as part of its county, a claim Larimer County also held. It took a decision by the Colorado Supreme Court in 1886 to declare North Park part of Larimer County. So its northern boundary was set.
Population in 2000: 12,442 people  and approximately 750 Bighorn Sheep

Known as: Dude Ranch Capital of the USA
