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
IAGenWeb is in need of county coordinators! Have you spent time
researching your family tree? Have you found some little tidbit of
information that led to another tidbit and on and on until you fleshed
out a story about how your family came to Iowa and helped settle a town
or about how your grandparents came to America? The excitement of
finding these little tidbits can create a love of genealogy and a desire
to help others find those little tidbits.
If you have computer skills and a couple hours a week to spare for
volunteering, please consider becoming a county coordinator for
IAGenWeb, which has been called “the best Iowa genealogy website” by
/Family Tree Magazine/. Read about becoming a county coordinator in the
Volunteer Primer at http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm, then check out
this list of available counties: *BLACK HAWK,* *CARROLL,* *CHICKASAW,*
*CLINTON,* *CRAWFORD,* *DES MOINES,* *GUTHRIE,* *HARRISON,* *IDA,*
*JACKSON,* *JONES,* *KEOKUK,* *LEE,* *MONTGOMERY,* *POTTAWATTAMIE,*
*POWESHIEK,* *SAC,* & *SCOTT* counties. For more information contact the

Welcome to the IADICKIN 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
