To those who have sent photos or letters anticipating seeing them on the
IaGenWeb Civil War site, my sincere apologies. I just could not keep up with
it and it was difficult to keep track of them unless a letter from the
submitter accompanied them explaining why they were being sent and the
subject line was clear about the content. It helps to write first before
sending the actual material.
Quite frankly, I began to go in circles so for the time being, I am not
accepting any new photos or letters unless they contain significant data
with them to be of research help to others that do not require a lot of
editing or setting up a special webpage for them.
If you have a small history, biography, or diary, of a Civil War soldier
by a photo, yes, I would still be interested in it. Of particular interest
that tell something about a particular battle, camp, or that contains
genealogical information. Keep in mind this is a genealogical site.
Tell the folks at home I am doing well only will probably not interest
readers. If there is a lot of disease in the camp (identified) or
conditions described, it might be of interest to other researchers.
Sorry, I couldn't use them all, folks. I know your family was meaningful
you and just having a letter at all from an ancestor is exciting. I am just
not capable of handling them all.
