Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
Does anyone know if there is a website, or an address that I can write to
for information on someone who was working as a conductor in 1870 Iowa and
Illinois? I have a gg grandfather that is shown as a railroad conductor on
the 1870 Peoria, IL census and he later moved to Iowa. It just so happens
that he has been very elusive in the vital records, and this may be the only
to pin him down. Thanks
Chickasaw County, Iowa
We are in the process of developing the Chickasaw IAGenWeb Web Site (http://iagenweb.org/chickasaw/ and really need the help of volunteers. We have been working pretty hard at it for the last twenty days and have generated fifty-some web pages and linkages to an uncounted number of databases. Give us a visit to see how we are doing; however, we need your help so that we may continue to grow and provide a free, meaningful, and resourceful web site to Chickasaw/Iowa genealogy researchers.
VOLUNTEER SUBMITTERS: If you have genealogy data which would be appropriate for posting on the web site, please send it to us and you'll be sure to be acknowledged as a contributor to our web site.
VOLUNTEER LOOKUPS: If you own or have access to any Chickasaw County resources, (such as census, cemetery, marriage, newspaper abstracts), and are willing to do lookups for other Chickasaw County researchers, please contact us. Let us know which resource you have and we'll add your name to the volunteers on our web site.
County Coordinator: Mike Peterson - email: email(a)peterson-home.com .
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Sincerely, Mike Peterson
