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 temperature cools, the leaves change color and the bountiful harvest
takes place in Iowa as we slip into autumn. A wonderful thing to harvest is
an Iowa county! We have several that are definitely worth "picking" -
Cedar, Keokuk and Fremont. You'll want to take a few moments and visit
these wonderful counties. Just send an email to the Welcome Hostesses with
your "pick" of counties at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org and we will
send you an application and get you started!

I started adding biographies of people from Audubon County to one of my web sites. Only a small start at this point, but they join over 5,000 biographies of people from MN, IL, MI, MA, ME and NY with the largest number being from New York state.
The names added for Audubon County are:
Consigny, John F.
Cousins, Edward B., Rev.
Freeman, Ethelbert J.
Hallock, Isaac P. Jr.
Holmes, John D.
Phelps, Byron S.
Roberts, Alexander H.
Sreere, Russell A., Hon.
Vail, Charles Howard
Van Gorder, Charles
These may be found at:
Please note that any errors in the book that I am using are not corrected, most of the books of biographies published in the 1800's have some errors in them.

PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
