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
Spring reviews for the IAGenWeb county sites start in a few weeks. If you
see something out of place or come across a broken link on the Buena Vista
site, please let me know. You can also do the same in the other counties
that you research by clicking on their coordinator's contact email.
If you think you might be interested in becoming a county coordinator
there is a good selection of counties to choose from. New coordinators are
needed for OSCEOLA, WAYNE, HENRY, SCOTT, LEE, GREENE, WEBSTER, LYON,
CHICKASAW, GUTHRIE, DICKINSON, & MONTGOMERY counties. For more information
contact the Welcome Hostesses at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org.
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.
