The COGenWeb Project has several Special Projects that will help you in your research. We also accept contributions to our special projects. If you have something to donate to our pages, please contact the coordinator in charge of the project you are interested in.

A project dedicated to helping kids and their teachers learn about how to do genealogy with a little Colorado history thrown in for good measure.

We are trying to get every cemetery in Colorado transcribed and online. Looking for the grave of a Colorado ancestor? Check this link out. Have a cemetery that you have transcribed? Submit it here.

An online repository for Colorado obituaries. At this writing, almost 1000 historic obits have been submitted. You can search this database or you can submit your transcribed obituaries here.

Colorado Land/Deeds Project:  Adopt Me!

Colorado Military Project:
Dedicated to those who have served our country. You will find all kinds of military records here, including, Civil War, WWI & II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm and others.

Colorado Maps Project:
This is an index to sites both within the USGenWeb and out, that have historic maps of the Colorado Territory and State. These include railroad maps, territorial maps, county evolution maps (showing how county boundaries have changed over time) and many others.

Colorado Gold Mine:   Adopt Me!
This site is dedicated to reuniting families with the memorabilia their ancestors left behind. Have you ever received a document, just to find out it didn't belong to any branch of YOUR family tree? Have you run across an old family Bible, but it isn't for YOUR family? What about an old letter? Have you ever seen old photos, family Bibles or other family memorabilia offered for sale in flea markets, antique shops, or auctions and wondered if someone is looking for them?
