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
Good idea. Received this from another list
Here's an appeal to all of you to pull out the copies of the SSAN
application forms you already have filed away in your "stuff" and post them
I just did it for the ones I have and it's really easy. :O)
1. Go to: http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi
2. Enter the name of the person who is on the form you have into the search
4. When the right entry comes up, go over to the far right and click on "Add
5. The "Fill in the blank" form will come up and you can type in the
information just like it's printed on the form you have in your hands!
6. Include all the information in the order that it is entered on the form,
so that others have the advantage of all that information. NOTE: You don't
have to type in the SS Number for the person as the Rootsweb program
Since the cost of these forms will be increasing substantially next week, it
would be good if EVERYONE put out the information they already have. Then
whoever else is searching for that same person won't be required to pay the
new price for the same form you have in your files. And vice-versa! If we
all "plant seed," we'll all get the crop!
To our volunteers and subscribers;
By now several of you have noticed radical
change in the Genconnect board.
This was done by ancestry.com.
There is much controversy by many and especially
county coordinators and volunteers in many States
especially Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota which
I am familar with.
They (Ancestry) combined some of the data, like Queries,
Obituaries, etc. We are not sure if this is
for the betterment of the Genealogy community.
We do hope that with all the controversy Ancestry
will abide by some of the feedback to them and
We are and have been fortunate to keep Genealogy
free to this point since inception in 1996.
Both Bob Kuehl our assistant CC have had discussions
about the many files we have. We are and will continue
the best we can to keep these files contained to Crawford
As for the Obituaries listed, they are still there.

Not sure if I sent this out last night
so am doing again.
The 1860 Crawford census is now online.
We do THANK Glenn Gustafson for submitting.
We do want to think about time frame here.
This would almost have to be the first census
and the Indians had to be on the prowl as well
as buffalo roaming. Can you imagine a team
of horses plowing thst soil the first time?
I'm looking for any information regarding a Moritz Detlefsen. I believe
that Moritz Detlefsen appeared on the census in 1905 in Otter Creek Twp,
Crawford Co, Iowa. He was married to Anna. Children were: Amanda
Detlefsen, Anna Maria Detlefsen.
Any info would be appreciated, Ric Detlefsen
We have several new items in the name
list section. The one just posted today is
1870 Boyer Valley data. I saw a couple names
that are familar to folks.
Winans and Worley. Then many more Swedish names.
Please send a thank you to Glenn Gustafson for
submmiting this data.
Now off the subject, hope you folks in Crawford
co have many tomato plants set. I would love
to have a bunch of ripe ones about now.
The ones we get here are Yuck!!
Thanks to Joyce Heide we have photos of 1924
8th grade Crawford co graduating class online
in the school section.
CAN ANY ONE SUPPLY THE NAMES OF ALL?
This will be a mice adddition to our school
section. Anyone else have country school
students and teacher photos and names?

I'll be traveling to Omaha for the College World Series (go Titans!) with
side trips to Vail this weekend and next week. I will mainly be searching
the two cemetaries there for ancestors.
If anyone would like me to look for an ancestor's headstone, I would be
happy to try and find it and take a picture, if you'd like.
Please let me know.
