In April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Arkansas Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Arkansas where collected databases would be stored. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and oversee the contents of the web page.
