Do you have a genealogy 'green thumb' and have some spare time you just
don't know what to do with? I think I have just thing for you to use
that 'green thumb on! Remember how "April showers bring May flowers",
well do I have some beautiful 'cuttings' for you to try your 'green
thumb' on! IAGenWeb has six wonderful 'cuttings' that would be make a
wonderful computer 'garden planting' for you.
Our six special 'cuttings' (orphan county projects) are: Greene, Grundy,
Lucas, Mills, Monroe and Webster. With a little TLC they will become the
bright spot of your computer garden. For more information on adopting
one of our orphan counties go to: http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm.
It's easier than it looks!
Why not visit the orphans today http://iagenweb.org/state/map.php and
think about all of the possible things you could do to improve the
county and how you could help others, then pick your favorite! Send an
email request for information and an application form to
