There is no password required to read USGenWeb Archives files online or to download them.
If you use AOL's built-in web browser, it might ask you for a user name and password.
To work around this, do the following:
- Enter keyword FTP
- Click on "Go to FTP"
- Click on "Other site"
- Enter the address of the archives and DO NOT check the box "Ask for login and password."
- Click on "Connect"
The above will put you in the main directory of the USGenWeb Archives.
From here you can click on any state directory, which will take you to a directory listing the counties.
You can choose the county of your choice, then go to other sub-directories which will be identifiable by
subject, such as "census", "vitals", "cemeteries", etc.
