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

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.
