I am looking for cemetery records for Buena Vista County IAGenWeb and
cemetery photos for the Buena Vista Gravestone Photo Project. If you
have records and would like to share them please contact me at
I look forward to hearing about your cemetery records and photos!
For most of us, we can say that winter is behind us and that we're ready
to get out and take on a new project. We have just the project for
you! How about becoming a county coordinator? It's so gratifying to
assist others in finding their family roots and those tidbits that help
them seem more like family and not just names.
If you haven't been by *LUCAS* county lately, stop in and notice its
"new" look and it has so much growth potential! New coordinators are
also needed for *WARREN,* *APPANOOSE,* *GUTHRIE,* *MONROE,* *CLINTON,* &
*CHEROKEE *counties. They can all be accessed at
If you have concerns about what is involved, you can refer to
http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm and, please, ask questions. We're
here to help! IAGenWeb county coordinators share skills and resources
with each other. You will always have good support in your new
position. Drop us a line with your choice of county!

This is a county list solely for the discussion of all things related to the history and genealogy of Buena Vista Co. and the people who made it what it is today. Buena Vista County was formed on January 15, 1851, from open land. It was named in memory of the Battle of Buena Vista in the Mexican-American War ending in 1848; the victorious United States annexed considerable territory as a result. Its county seat is Storm Lake.
