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
We have some great new updates to the Henry County IAGenWeb site that you
will want to check out.
Slowly, but surely, I'm updating the cemetery indexes with great hopes of
having as complete of indexes as possible on the site. If you get the chance
to photograph or even just walk and record information, please be sure to
share! As I live too far away to record them personally, I'm transcribing
the wonderful photos that many of you have contributed to the Gravestone
Photo Project. Some of the photos are very difficult to read so I have had
to guess at some of the date information. If you're able to correct any,
please let me know. I usually made notations in the comments column when I
couldn't read them accurately. When photographing, please concentrate on the
information on the stone more than the surrounding landscape. If you are
able to identify the location of the gravestone (section row, etc), that is
wonderful information to put in the comments section when uploading the
photos. Also if the stone is difficult to read due to the photo or the wear
of the stone, if you know the data please add it too.
The cemeteries we now have updated or new indexes for are:
Brooks Cemetery http://iagenweb.org/henry/Cemeteries/cemindexbrooks.htm
Saint Alphonsus Cemetery http://iagenweb.org/henry/Cemeteries/stalphonsus
Forest Home Cemetery http://iagenweb.org/henry/Cemeteries/cemindexforesthome
There could still be more updates to Forest Home. From the indexes are links
to the photos on the GPP.
War Casualties of WWII, Korea and Vietnam have been added.
New additions to the Surname Registry are Haines/Haynes and
McCuen/McEwen/McQuen; Berry and Williams; Gillis
We have a new Lookups page. If you have any records that you could look up
information, are close to the county courthouse, or near a particular
cemetery and wish to volunteer, please let me know. Your generosity will be
The References & Resources page has been updated. Please be sure to check
out the museum section.
Have a great sunny day!

Your support makes IAGenWeb possible:
Are you looking for a fun project and a great people to associate
with? Then I have the perfect project
for you to become a part of! IAGenWeb
has some great counties that need coordinators. Take a look at Adams, Black Hawk,
Chickasaw, Crawford, Des Moines, Dickenson, Greene, Guthrie, Harrison, Jones, Linn, Lyon,
Montgomery, Osceola, Pottawattamie and Scott counties at http://iagenweb.org/state/colist.php . They all have great information available,
but really need someone to add new data and care for them. If you ever wondered what it takes to be a
coordinator, visit http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm .
Come join us at IAGenWeb! We look forward to hearing from you welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org soon with your choice of counties!
