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
The summer is passing by far too quickly. But don't pass by these great
IAGenWeb counties that are available for adoption. Being a county coordinator
is a very rewarding experience. You may have family connections or you may just
have a desire to be a part of a great group of people helping others. Go to
http://iagenweb.org/ click on the County Projects link and take a tour of these
available counties - Keokuk, Fremont, Lyon, Monroe and Poweshiek. Then send an
email to the Welcome Hostesses with your choice of counties at
welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org and we will send you an application and answer
any questions you have. It's just that easy to get started!

Good ol' summertime in Iowa. you can't ask for a better place to be in
August! The sweet corn and fresh tomatoes and watermelon are bountiful.
You too can be part of one of the best things about Iowa - the IAGenWeb's
beautiful counties and becoming a county coordinator. Winneshiek and Lyon
counties are perfect examples of those rare places worth visiting and
possibly settling into. Other wonderful places available and worth checking
out are Keokuk, Floyd, Audubon, and Fremont counties.
If you are interested in adopting one of these great counties, please email
the Welcome Hostesses with your choice of counties to
welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org and we will send you an application. If
you have any questions, we'll do our very best to answer them too!
