Thanks to all you good people out there. It's difficult researching abroad, apart from the distance I am unsure how long suffering your county clerks are, and whether they are happy to search over some months as they do in England. Over here they will usually go 6 months to a year either side of the date you give them for the standard fee of the certificate if they find it. That doesn't apply to the main Record Office which is in London and has births marriages and deaths for the whole of the British Isles from 1837. You have to be exact when applying to them but our county registration Offices are pretty good. I have no doubt I shall be researching these pages for some while, so I anticipate the learning curve..........................Diane
This is my first time on the Iowa list. I am English, researching from England for my American husband. We have just received family papers that tantalizingly give us the name George Burgess died aged 75 years 1935
St?[hard to read] Colo IA . As I am a foreigner I have no idea where this might be, the US map finder couldn't find it, for that matter my husband who hails from Illinois has no idea either......... HELP......... If someone out there does know where it is, is there any one out there who might be able to check this death for us? I have strong reason to believe this is George Washington Burgess born 1861 Iowa. Married Ellen Mussleman in Piatt Co IL. in 1885, some of their family returned to IL. I have put details of a family obit on the query page of Storey Co IA. Have one alteration to make that of Mrs Helen [should be Trouter not Trotner] and also one extra male, Ames Burgess of Maitland MO. Would be glad of any help no matter how small........ Many thanks from a cold wet England...........Diane Rayburn
