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
Harrison County, IA has very good websites. I have listed 2 URLS below.
I frequent these as my family was there from 1855 to 1877, when the
first of them headed for Oregon. My father was born in January 1877 and
by May 1877, his parents & the grandmother were on their way to Oregon.

The Harrison County Genealogy Society has a lot of books/booklets.
There are historys of Harrison County.

Try this multi-search engine! It came from another list.
My GREENE was Benajah Samuel Greene, who was listed as B.S. GREENE in
the 1891 "Harrison County Iowa History". I am still searching for his
other children as well as information about his and his wife, Harriet
Kinney (Kinne) burial.

:Shirley, thank you......
Hi to all GREEN rooters
It searches multiple genealogical databases from one site. Simply
fill in an ancestor's name, click on which of the seven databases you wish
search and then MultiGen does the search for you. To search the additional
databases simply click BACK in your Web browser and then click on the next
database in the list. Databases included are: Ancestry.com, Family Tree
Maker, Gendex, Genealogy.com, JewishGenFamilyFinder, Kindred Korrections,
and LDS Family Search.
I think this one's awesome....
