Happy New Year Iowa Genealogists!
Why now make a New Year's Resolution to adopt one of IAGenWeb's orphan
counties?! We have four outstanding orphaned counties that would love to
have you use your magic and give them your own TLC. The counties are
Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Montgomery and Osceola counties.
These counties come in different in every way, size, location and all
terrific! Wont you take
a few minutes to "tour" our orphan counties, and then send me a request for
an application either Cerro Gordo, Floyd, Montgomery and Osceola
counties?! All of our orphan counties are in need of a bit of TLC. Someone
who loves genealogy, enjoys giving and likes sharing with others. If you
adopt a county, you will benefit other researchers, join a great team of
volunteers, as well as having the feeling of satisfaction knowing you have
helped others along their family research paths.
Would you like to know what the requirements are? Or would you like an
application for one of our terrific orphan counties? Then email the Welcome
Hostess for IAGenWeb at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org and we will
be happy to answer your questions.
This invitation is open also to any current county coordinators who would
like to adopt another county. Just email us and we will get an application
to you! And if you are interested in adopting a county that already has a
CC, we'll be happy to put you on the waiting list. If your county of
interest comes open you'll be notified with the right to apply first or
