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
Can anyone tell me who has the records for the school that
existed for children who lived north of Hillsboro? I believe
I read it called Pea Ridge. Also, can anyone tell me anything
at all about John H. Sneath, son of James and Martha Sneath;
he went to Hamiliton, IL and was there in 1898. He later
moved back to Louisa Co. and then to Scott Co.
I am trying to locate a copy of the Salem Weekly News (Salem, Henry County,
Iowa) for December 1915 so that I can find a relative's obituary.
Unfortunately the Mount Pleasant Public Library lacks copies for 1915 as does
the Iowa State Historical Society Library. Does anyone know whether I might
find this newspaper in some other archive?
Can someone tell me if newspapers on microfilm are available for Rome and/or
Henry County in 1894??
If so, where do they reside??
Lastly, anyone willing to trade some research in return for looking up an
obit?? I have access to one of the best genealogical collections on the West
Coast and a branch of the National Archives.
