Good Morning, Iowa genealogists!
You are invited to an Open house!! That's right an Open House!
There is no entrance fee! The tour is Free! You are invited to take a tour
of our two wonderful orphan counties! Our orphans are Hancock and Keokuk.
They come in various sizes, shapes and colors. You'll find something for
Both of our 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.
What are the requirements you ask? An Internet connection, a very basic
knowledge of HTML, and the ability (or willingness to learn) to FTP (upload)
files to a server. Most of us started with the Internet connection and a
shaky knowledge (some shakier than others) of the other two requirements. We
learned on the job and kept learning, often from each other. There are no
dumb questions and there is always someone handy to help answer a question.
Many tips and helps are posted on the IAGenWeb Forum for all coordinators.
If you're interested in hosting Hancock and Keokuk counties email us for an
application. We'd love to welcome you into our family!
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! Or if you would like to be on our waiting list for some other
county, just email us!
IAGenWeb Welcome Hostess
Come One Come All, it's fair time at IAGenWeb!! That's right it's County Fair
We have three exciting counties for you to visit: Clarke, Hancock,and Keokuk!
Which one will you take home? More fun than the Ferris wheel or the roller
coaster and a lot less stressful than the 'tilt a-whirl'! Come join the fun at
IAGenWeb! Visit one of our orphaned counties and pick the one that fits you
You don't have to be an expert, although knowing a bit about HTML, FTPing, and
maintaining a web site gives you a head start. Even those things aren't
absolutely essential because the rest of us are here to help newcomers. Part of
the fun of being a county coordinator is learning on the job.
If you're interested in becoming a county coordinator and a part of the Great
IAGenWeb project, please email us welcom_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org with your
questions or to ask for an application form. We're waiting to hear from you!!

Since it has been almost two years since your post, you may already have the answer to your question.
My mother was born in Plymouth in 1926. She was born at home as there was no local hospital (the nearest one was Mason City). I am not aware if there was a doctor or midwife present but I assume there must have been.
Hope that helps.
