will bring you an in-depth series about Iowa's open-records law, government
agencies and accessibility to public information. Articles from Sunday's
newspaper will be posted online Monday morning by 11 a.m.. Click on the

> SUNDAY: Local government officials in Iowa, especially those in law
enforcement, routinely deny citizens access to information about their
government, an investigation conducted by the state's newspapers found. The
first-of-its-kind audit in Iowa found that government workers often were
ignorant of the requirements of the state's open-records law.
> MONDAY: Public records held by law enforcement agencies were those least
likely to be available for inspection. Most of Iowa's public school
districts either ignored a request for copies of two records or said the
copies must be picked up in person, rather than being mailed to a citizen.

Does anyone on this list have any advice or hints about researching the Amana
Colonies? My husband's mother was born in South Amana, in 1896, and I can't
get an original birth certificate for her..only a delayed one. Did they
register births? I have had some contact with a genealogist who has access
to their records, which are apparently all in German.
BRIDGETON MEMORIAL PARK
1843 -------- 1963
This burying ground at 4616 Long Road was made into a memorial
park in 1962. In 1959 several lawsuits were filed against the City for
allowing the cemetery to deteriorate. Individual stones had already been
removed "through error and misunderstanding" but members of the Bridgeton
Historical Commission were able to learn the names of some who were buried
there and a large monument was erected in 1963 which bears this inscription,
"We honor the people buried here. They were part of this nations adventure
and their vision lighted the path we follow today." At the dedication
ceremonies, Mrs. Anna Wilson gave a talk about colored veterans who are
buried here. Records indicate that the cemetery was integrated from its
beginning in 1858. It was in use as late as 1954 and at least 100 people are
buried in the two acres. On the bronze plaque of the monument are the
