JULY 9, 2005
6 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!
Six years ago July 9 we took over the Crawford
County Gen Web site. At that time the counter registered 4400,
now we are over 50,000 and over 600 files to search.
Go to the Database page and look at the folders of information
available. All the census data has been added, all the town histories,
church histories, and most of the cemetery data, as well as church
histories, and a large number of name lists from several county atlas'
and directories, and newspapers, and on and on.
There are a couple cemeteries that have not been available at this point.
One is the Nishnabotna one mile west of Manila on 141 at the top of the
There is a Catholic cemetery Mount Olivet located in Manila.
It has been each and all of the many volunteers, and the
genealogy interest of folks with roots to Crawford county that have
made the Crawford GenWeb one of the best in Iowa.
Glenn Gustafson has donated much of his data from
his Kiron Kountry. If anyone has ever checked out Kiron
Kountry you will note that he has a large amount of data online that,
we are sure, he has spent much time obtaining and
We have many excellent links to data for other research,
in Crawford county, the state of Iowa, the United States and the World.
We are still getting data and many other items to add to the
pages from around the county, this is due to the many
folks that have an interest in Crawford County.
We do wish to thank those folks very much and please!!
continue to send your items.
NOTE to this: If you have personal family data we recommend
you make a family web page. We can then add your link to
the family genealogies area. If you need some minor assistance
to this, we will try and lend assistance.
To sum it up this is our county, each and every
person's name on the Crawford Gen Web pages has helped
and contributed in various ways. The pages are for our
pleasure and for the many visitors to our site. This data is
the property of Crawford County, Iowa, GenWeb Project.
Submitted, transcribed, entered and maintained by folks
with ROOTS to Crawford county, Iowa.
Both Bob and I will do our best to keep it here.
Last but not least, the Crawford County site is
and has been produced and maintained by the rules
and regulations set forth by the USGenWeb, IAGenWeb
better known as the Genealogy web, with Rootsweb
storing our files free of charge.
Rootsweb is one of the big reasons we can keep all of our data
free to all. A few years ago Rootsweb was purchased by Ancestry.
With this move all county coordinators were promised that
storage of our files would continue to remain free.
Just a note of the quantity of data that our volunteers added the
following in the last 12 months:
1. the 1911 biographies
2. the 1893 biographies
3. the WPA cemetery records
4. the baptisms, confirmations, marriages and funerals at
Friedens Church in Schleswig
5. part of the 1930 Denison census
6. the 1865 Iowa Gazetteer article on Crawford Co. history
7. newspaper articles for Dow City that Melba McDowell sent to us
8. lots of photos for schools, etc., that others sent to us.

The only "Hull" that comes to my mind is in Yorkshire County, England.
Some of my rellies originally came from the city of "Kingston upon Hull"
(in the East Riding of Yorkshire County) which is more commonly called
"Hull" for short.
The city of Hull is located in NE England, on the north shore of the Humber
estuary at the influx of the small "Hull River".
The Methodist movement began in 1739 when John Wesley, an Anglican started
within the Church of England a movement to improve the spiritual life of
his Church. The Wesley Historical Society is in Hull, England, they study
early Methodism and publish a quarterly. There seems to have been a number
of prominent Methodist Preachers that came out of the Hull area so maybe
there was a seminary there.
