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
My name is Al Dawson and I'm new to this list.? My email is Microfish7(a)aol.com.?
I serve on the board of the Iowa City Genealogical Society and so often have requests for assistance.?The latest is from a friend with Henry County roots.? She has a clipping, torn in half, that appears to be from a 1958 newspaper.? Her family is the subject of that week's Mystery Farm series.
On the back of the page it appears a bank __________AL BANK was the sponsor.? And this was the 171st in a series!? Her grandparents were Manis and Margaret Remick and the farm was in Mount Union, "located four miles south of Winfield and half a mile east."? My friend lived in the farm as a child.
Our quest is to identify the newspaper (Mt Pleasant News?? Winfield Beacon?) and obtain a photocopy of the entire article.??

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.

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.
