Summer Is on the way! It's a great time to get out and walk cemeteries,
take photos of headstones, churches, historical sites, visit with county
recorders and clerks, and transcribe records. All of the great
information and photos you collect can find a home on an IAGenWeb county
or project. So can you if you become a county coordinator. It's not
necessary to live in Iowa to be a coordinator - just a love of Iowa's
genealogy and the desire to help others. New coordinators are needed for
*GREENE,* *LUCAS,* *MONROE,* *WEBSTER,* & *WAPELLO *counties. They can
all be visited at http://iagenweb.org/state/colist.php .

Buena Vista County, Iowa Genealogy Group
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.
