July 1, 2011 began the new term for our IAGenWeb Leadership Team. State Coordinator is now Ralph Leonard and the Assistant State Coordinator is Stephen D. Williams. Sharon Becker and I are the Welcome Hostesses.
We have three beautiful Orphan Counties that need coordinators: LINN http://iagenweb.org/linn/ * MARION http://iagenweb.org/marion/ * and TAMA http://iagenweb.org/tama/ .
It is not necessary to live in Iowa to be a county coordinator. The main duties of a coordinator include answering email requests for research assistance, providing newly transcribed information, and maintaining the site, mostly through minimizing broken links. We'd prefer a coordinator have at least basic knowledge of how to create web pages, either by writing their own code or using web design software, but this is not required to apply.
Read more about the position at http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm .
If you would like to adopt one of these counties, please drop us a line at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org
We would love hearing from you!

I was hoping to find the Richard L Paul family. His wife was Lilly R.
They lived in Oxford, Johnson, IA in 1920. A grandson, Ellis Ward Paul is
supposedly buried in Heifner Cemetery in Oxford. Does anyone know anything
about this family. A son of Richard and Lilly married Pearl Ellis and they
had Ellis Ward Paul, who was born 1911 and died 1937. Any info would be
