Christmas time is near and what a great time it is to consider giving
back to others in the form of some of your time, as others have given
to you along your genealogical path. Have you ever thought about
becoming a volunteer county coordinator? IAGenWeb is one of the best
genealogy groups to be a part of. We strive to provide the best
research assistance possible. Everyone helps each other with web
skills, data sources for transcribing records, suggestions for
answering researchers' questions, etc.
If you would like to know more about what's needed, visit the Volunteer
Primer page at http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm . But don't stop
there! Visit a variety of the web sites that have active county
coordinators and look over those needing someone permanent. The links
are available at http://iagenweb.org/state/cc_coun.php . They will
give you a great idea of what's involved in being a county coordinator.
Then, when you've decided which available county you would like to
coordinate, send us an email designating the county of your choice and
asking any questions you may have at
Join Our Team!

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.
