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
We are on a roll ! Our search engine is now scanning 205 pages, our search engine is being used 80 - 100 times a week, we are now averaging about 600 visits to the web site a month, and if you enter "chickasaw" and "genealogy" into Google we have moved from number 50 three months ago to six today ! Come visit us and share the experience at - http://iagenweb.org/chickasaw/ .
This continued success would not be possible without the great Chickasaw volunteer contributors/submitters. Sharing their knowledge with us has been a terrific experience. I thank these contributors for their efforts this past month: The Floden Family, Leonard Granger, Claudia Groh, David Keegan, Cathy Joynt Labath, Sheryl McClure, Jim Neiers, Marilyn O'Conner, Greta Thompson, and Paul Vasold. Thank you all for your contributions
Visit our "What's New" page at http://iagenweb.org/chickasaw/whatsnewindex.htm to see what we've done in the last month.
We invite those of you who have genealogy documents, photos, records, maps, obituaries, biographies, and so on which pertain to Chickasaw county to please contribute them to our site so that your data may be shared with others who are researching and who knows - you just may meet some new distant 'cousins' through the process. We are also open to suggestions for our web site.

I have a great uncle who served in World War One. The
family lost track of him after Dec.1947. I have the
place and year of induction and the mustering out
dates and places. However the NARA people wrote back
that his record could not be found. I did notice that
the info I sent NARA was typed by them on the form
they returned to me an obvious transcription of what I
origianlly sent them. They however had a typo
error as they had typed in his birth date as Nov. 11,
2018! My date was Nov. 11, 1898.
Someone on one of the lists I belong to in the past
had narrated the problme he had getting military
records and how he resolved that problem..if he still
is on the list could he resend his experience?
If you can find a military ID number can a person be
tracked without a surname? As amilitary veteran of
Worlk War One would he have gotten a small pension?
Family history whispers that this gu may have changed
I believe he probably died in the state areas of MN,
WI, IO, ILL and most probably in the VA hospital in
MIlwaukee. But not having a death date or surname is
posing a problem. Any and all suggestions on how to
resolve this will be gratefully accepted.

Subject: [IOWA] New Special Project
> I'm happy to announce a new Special Project, the Iowa Family Group Sheet
(FGS) project. It's my privilege to be managing it, and I hope to be very
busy adding family group sheets submitted by all of you.
> The URL for the page is http://www.rootsweb.com/~usfgs/iowa/. I think
you'll find the page easy to read and use, but if you have any questions or
concerns, please let me know. The USFGS home page
(http://www.rootsweb.com/~usfgs/) links to all the states that have a family
group project. You'll see that all 50 states are coming online some time
soon, and more than half are online now.
> I hope you'll take advantage of this new project. Those of us who have
been working to bring it to Iowa are very excited about its possibilities.
Any family group that lived in Iowa, even for a short time, can be posted.
THE ONLY IOWANS WHO CANNOT BE POSTED ARE THOSE WHO ARE LIVING. Each family
group sheet provides space for basic information about father, mother, and
children; so if you only know about one family unit, you know enough to put
the information up. If you know more, you can add more family group sheets:
the father's parents and siblings, the mother's parents and siblings, the
children's spouses and children, and on and on. If you've traced the family
on into Kansas, Colorado, and Oregon, you can post your group sheet in those
states as well as Iowa. But just one family sheet in one state can be enough
to make new and exciting connections.
> We've prepared the pages and forms, added search engines and links, and
now it's in your hands. Send in your family group sheets. One a day, one a
week, whatever works for you. Tell your fellow researchers about the site.
Talk about it at your next genealogical society meeting. Mention it in your
emails. The more people hear about the site, the more contributions we're
likely to get; and the more contributions we receive, the more valuable the
project is going to be.
> I'll be waiting for your family to turn up in my mailbox!

The Iowa GenWeb Project has announced a new Special Project, the Iowa Family Group Sheet (FGS) Project. The URL for the page is http://www.rootsweb.com/~usfgs/iowa/. You should find it easy to use, but if you have any questions or concerns, send them an email from the page. It's a great and easy way to get your FGS out so all may benefit. Enjoy!
