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
I may regret making this offer....but, I am headed back to Davis, Appanoose
& Monroe Counties in Iowa toward the end of may. I will probably spend a
day in each county (not enough, i know!) but if there is something I can
pick up for anyone while i'm there, or if you'd like me to post something in
the libraries, please let me know.

Tax Rolls can be found in county historical societies, county
archives, state archives, state historical societies;
On microfilm at the LDS Family History Center --check their catalogue on
line at familysearch.org.
Does anyone know if tax records are available online? I'm specifically interested in 1871 - 1900. Family lore has it that my great grandfather opened the first general store in Monterey. I'd like to find out one way or the other.
Another option might be to contact Dorothy Goldizen, corresponding secretary for the Davis Co.
Genealogical Society. I don't have her address at my fingertips but if you call the Davis Co.
Library in Bloomfield, they can give it to you. She was a very big help to me a couple of years ago
finding some of my maternal grandmother, Gladys Barnett Knedler's family information, and I am
deeply in her debt. If she is busy, she could probably refer you to someone.

Welcome to the IADAVIS mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
3. Proofread and be sure you want your post public. All posts go in the archives!
