Ever wish you could travel back in time, down along the old dusty roads
of Iowa to its little towns and farmlands? I get to do that every day
that I transcribe cemetery gravestones, census records, look up an obit,
and on and on. I am an IAGenWeb county coordinator and I love it! If you
have Iowa ties and would like to join a wonderful group of volunteers as
a county coordinator, please let us know! We have a wonderful selection
of counties that could really benefit from you. They are GUTHRIE, JONES,
JACKSON, SAC, IDA, POWESHIEK, CLINTON, CRAWFORD, SCOTT, KEOKUK,
HARRISON, LEE, POTTAWATTAMIE, DES MOINES, MONTGOMERY, BLACK HAWK,
CARROLL, GREENE, & LYON counties.
To learn more about what is required, send us an email and we’ll get you
started. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
