It's almost time for Spring ... warm sunshine, snow melting, green grass showing, new flowers coming up and the proverbial spring cleaning! My favorite time of the We at IAGenWeb are getting ready for Spring and doing our own "spring cleaning" in preparation for our Spring Reviews. New information is being added, broken links are being fixed, pages being freshened and we have been fortunate to have four of our orphan counties adopted (Ida, Decatur, Ringgold and Greene)!
We at IAGenWeb hope you will stop by and visit our new CCs. At the same time we hope you will visit our orphan counties and find one that is just right for your family. Our orphans are: Adams, Carroll, Cerro Gordo, Emmet, Floyd, Jones, Jackson, Lyon, Mahaska, Montgomery, Mitchell, Pottawattamie, Poweshiek, Sac and Tama.
