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
Hello Fremont County Researchers, as many of you know the Rootsweb mailing
list has been un-usable for the last few months. I think we are back up
and running now, so I wanted to give you all a little update on Fremont
We have been working on adding some of the old cemetery records. This is a
huge project, and does take time, but hopefully little by little we will
get to the cemetery you are hoping to see posted on-line.
Some of the cemeteries we have added to are; Antrim, Beehive, Duff, Lacy
Grove, McElroy Manti, Acord, Knox, Hume, Benson, County Farm, and
to Penny Stewart and Lois Shaul for these sweet additions.
The next cemetery we will be working on is Sidney. I would like to post
the burials in Sidney. If you would like to help transcribe, please
contact me. The more help, the faster we will post the results.
Many thanks to those that have helped our site grow. Thank you to Harry
Wilkens, Tabor Historical Society, for adding to the WWII Honor Roll. Tanya
Webster donated some historical stories, and Jen Shaffer has donated some
nice identified photos.
Many thanks to Stephanie Pierce, Jen Shaffer, Ken Wright Cheryl Moonen,
Lois Shaul, for helping our obituaries site grow. We have added 97
obituaries since my last note. Let’s keep this growing. You can view or
add to the obituaries here;
http://iagenweb.org/boards/fremont/obituaries/index.cgi,. Thank you!
Let’s try adding some photos to our IowaGravestone site;
https://iowagravestones.org/ . If you have a camera, live close to
Fremont County, and would like to help, this is the perfect time of year to
be out walking cemeteries and taking pictures. We are so in need of
cemetery entrance photos, of most of the cemeteries. If you have pictures,
and need help loading, please let me know. I would love to help you.
I am always looking for new information. If you have anything to share,
please contact me directly at kbtechau(a)gmail.com. If you see errors,
please let me know. I am happy to make corrections.
For all of you that are on Facebook, and have roots in Iowa, please check
out IAGenWeb’s FB page, search for IAGenWeb. Feel free to add to it.
Thanks for all your support.
