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
I have been reconstructing the site which involves the Orphans' Home in Cedar Falls, IA. While there is more information about the home and happenings through the years, the site is up and running for now. Updates will be further down the road.
This site will take you to the sites with an index to the images which were in the booklet and also a listing of the orphans included. This information is from:
Soldiers' Orphans' Home 1863 - 1876, By Val Martin.
There is a new site available tonite on the Black Hawk County site.
It is from a book called "Men of Iowa, 1902". For BHC purposes, all that is on the site at this time are persons of Black Hawk County. As I go along, there will be a complete index available which will list all of the images of persons in all counties.
You may find it at: http://www.rootsweb.com/%7Eiablackh/iamen.htm
Next project is updating the Soldiers' Orphans' Home pages. I will be adding to them, rescanning images and whatever else I can think of to add to it. The complete list of orphans has been completed, and I will notify you when it is all uploaded and all links are connected. I am rescanning the image of the staff reunion up to 200% so that many of the faces will be more noticable. This should happen all within the next couple of days.
Welcome! This is the former Rootsweb list, IAHOWARD. We'll be discussing the history and genealogy of Howard County, Iowa including the surrounding region of northeastern Iowa and southeastern Minnesota.
Welcome to the IAHOWARD mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.

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.
