The Kansas State Library has very graciously donated free space for the use of the KSGenWeb pages on their server Blue Skyways. Any space you might already have with your present server can be saved for you to use with your personal pages. It is not mandatory that you use the Skyways 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 on the Skyways server linking to your pages. To meet the KSGenWeb agreement with Blue Skyways we must have a page for every KS county on the server. Thus, the link from the state page will always be to the Blue Skyways server. This will also simplify linking to adjacent KSGenWeb county pages.
Note: County names are a maximum of 8 letters and always lower

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.
