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.
