In the subject of your email put SUBSCRIBE KSGEN-L . Please include 1) what county you would be interested in hosting and/or 2) if the county already has a host, other assistance you might be able to provide such as lookups, transcribing primary reference material, etc. We would also appreciate it if you would include your snail mail address and a phone number in case we need to contact you and can't make contact by e-mail, this will be kept confidential.
We are in the process of working with a state university to obtain space for KSGenWeb pages. It is not mandatory that you use this free space but it is certainly recommended and we hope you will. If you choose to host your page elsewhere, a basic county page will be placed in the KSGenWeb directory linking to your pages. This should also simplify linking to adjacent KSGenWeb county pages.
Beyond these few "bare essentials", your page is yours to do
with as you please. Should there be any changes made in the
basic requirements, you will be notified on the mailing list and this message will be updated.
We have established an image directory at our root level and have placed the logo and background and several other image files in it for you to use. If you have any images you would like to use on your pages and they are not specific to your county, send them to email@example.com and we'll upload them for you to the image dir. This way they will be available for others as well and we won't be wasting space by having the same image in 105 different directories. If the image is specific to your page (for instance a map of your county) then the image can either be placed in the image dir, your county directory or you can establish your own image dir for your county.

The html code for your pages in the ksgenweb.org county directory is:
< img src="../images/xxxxx.gif" >
The county maps used on our pages are available for your use whether your page is on the ksgenweb.org server or not. The name for each is: mxxxxxx.gif
To access it from your county page, once the page is on Skyways, you may use the coding:
< img src="../map/mxxxxxx.gif" >
Note: first six letters of your county's name, all lower case.
If you need a map, you should still be able to access it with:
< img src="www.ksgenweb.org/map/mxxxxxx.gif" >
Replace the x's with the first six letters of your county's name. This is a map similar to the one in the logo, but the individual county has been emphasized with a deep blue.
It is the policy of the KSGenWeb Project to obtain permission from the creator of the code, graphics, and backgrounds before using them on our pages.
If you find yourself having used someone's code without their permission, please either obtain that permission or remove that feature from your pages. Of course this is not necessary if you have obtained them for a site that has put them up for you to use. You also have permission to use the wheat background found on the state pages if you wish on official KSGenWeb pages. It was created for our use by Tom and Carolyn Ward. Please include a statement stating that the KSGenWeb logo and, if used, the wheat background are copyrighted and for use exclusively on official KSGenWeb pages.
Do not lift a bunch of links from someone elses page unless you ask them for permission, or change the descriptions of them and mix them up.
Links page has been established for Kansas Links of general
interest. To avoid duplication we would encourage you to link to
this page. Also, send additional state wide link suggestions to
