You're looking for information on someone in an Arkansas county and you go to the county in the USGenWeb Archives and guess what? The county has every bit of info you need ON LINE and you can access it FREE!
All it takes is people like you and me to accomplish this. Wouldn't you like to volunteer to transcribe a record or two? Just a little time each week from a lot of people and within a year or two there's no telling what we could do.
1. The best way to submit is to use our automated forms. To use them click HERE.
2. Records can also be submitted to the county file manager by copying them into an email message or sending as an attachment to an email meassage. The county file manager's email address can usually be located at the bottom of the county Table of Contents page.
Federal Census (free, slave, mortality, agriculture, veterans...

1. Only virus-checked files will be accepted.
2. Ascii text (.txt) files are preferred. Non-text will be converted to text before storing. If you have created a .doc, .wri, .xls, .dbf, etc. file, you may submit it for reformatting. Hard "tabs" are not encouraged, as they do not translate the same on all browsers. Please use "5 spaces" in place of tabs. Large files may be split. We may, at our discretion, store the same data in several formats. Scanned documents will be considered, depending on their content.
3. All data is free to the public, and the USGenWeb Archives project will not pay royalties on any submissions.
4. Data is provided for downloading "as is" -- no guarantees of anything
5. File contributors must use their own discretion regarding the inclusion of data on living people. If it is not public domain information, however, please do not submit it. Cemetery records and obituaries are public domain but transcribed records from the private sources are not.
6. We will not accept gedcoms due to space considerations.
7. No executable files will be accepted.
8. Do not send copyrighted material, unless it is your
own, and you include a statement of permission to use in the document.
Note: Public domain records cannot be copyrighted.
9. We cannot guarantee permanency, in the event data is lost.
10. Any obviously false, malicious, libelous, or copyrighted data will be erased. We do not guarantee the validity of any files. Always check the original document.
11. These guidelines are subject to change.
12. Once submitted, the data can't be retracted by submitter. (This rule causes concern to many potential submitters. The reason for this rule is that the volunteer file managers spend many hours preparing the files in the proper format for viewing by all types of computers. We have to discourage submissions - retractions - submissions - retractions because of the volume of data that is submitted. The USGenWeb Archives are accessible FREE and will remain FREE, to researchers. The files within will not be used for any commercial purposes by the USGenWeb Project.)
13. We retain the right to refuse any submission.
14. Files in the USGenWeb Archives may not be copied for selling in any format.
Being responsible for a county in the AR Archives is an
important job and we do need volunteers. There are very few rules but
they are important ones.
We need your help to make this project grow! Please submit your information by using the automatic forms or contact the state file manager..
