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
I received the latest issue of Family Tree Magazine today.
Listed in the article "101 Best Free Websites for Tracing Your Roots" under
"East of the Rockies" on page 21 is IowaGenWeb!
"Though technically part of the USGenWeb network, this state site deserves
an individual mention for its spiffy design, well-organized county
information and especially its special projects. These include a family
group sheet collection, gravestone photos, history book transcriptions,
articles from old newspapers, state censuses and WPA graves registrations."
Iowa and Oklahoma are the only two state sites singled out. The UsGenWeb is
listed under "The Big Picture."
Thank you to all who have contributed items to IAGenWeb. Your contributions
have made it the great project it is today
My Best To You All,
July 1st began the new term for our IAGenWeb Leadership Team. State Coordinator is now Linda Ziemann and the Assistant State Coordinator is Ralph Leonard. Sharon Becker and I are the Welcome Hostesses.
We have four beautiful Orphan Counties that need coordinators. *GREENE,* *LUCAS,* *MONROE,* & *WAPELLO *counties. They can all be visited at http://iagenweb.org/state/colist.php .
It's not necessary to live in Iowa to be a coordinator - just a love of Iowa's genealogy and the desire to help others. Read more about becoming a county coordinator at
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
