Good Morning Benton County Genealogists,
You are invited to an Iowa 'Country Fair'!! That's right an Iowa 'Country
Fair'! One of our neighbors, Tama County, is on display on the runway at the
'IAGenWeb Country Fair'! Wont you visit with them and consider taking one of
them home with you. They are just waiting to be one of the lucky counties
going home to a new 'family'.
There is no entrance fee! The 'Fair' is Free! Our 'Country Fair' is being
held to show off our six outstanding orphaned counties! They are Greene,
Lucas, Montgomery, Osceola, Tama and Wayne. They come in various sizes,
shapes and colors. You'll find something for everyone! Each of our six
orphan counties are in need of a bit of TLC. Someone who loves genealogy,
enjoys giving and likes sharing with others. If you adopt a county, you will
benefit other researchers, join a great team of volunteers, as well as have
an experience that's both fun and creative.
Want to know what the requirements are? Or would you like an application for
one of our terrific counties? Then email one of our Welcome Hostess
This invitation is open also to any current county coordinators who would
like to adopt another county. Just email us and we will get an application
to you! And if you are interested in adopting a county that already has a
CC, we'll be happy to put you on the waiting list. If your county of
interest comes open you'll be notified with the right to apply first or
IAGenWeb Welcome Hostesses
