Hello Jones County Researchers,
This year has flown by. Hope you all have been finding many treasures in your Family
History Research. I wanted to give you a little update on your Jones County site. I have
become the temporary baby sitter for Jones county. What I have noticed about this county
in the last month is, it is well loved by researchers.
Since April of 2019, there have been over 200 obituaries added,
. A big thank you to Sharon Elijah, Ken
Wright, and Cheryl Moonen. There have also been some nice biographies, with photos added,
thank you Debbie Goddard. You can view the biographies here,
In the last month, I have been contacted by several people that have questions about their
ancestors that lived in Jones. Unfortunately, I do not know this county and have been
very little help to these researchers. I am hoping that soon, someone, perhaps one of you
will volunteer to be a real County Coordinator for Jones County. This person would keep
the site updated, and work with Jones County researchers. If you love Jones County,
please give this some thought. It is a great way to give back to the genealogy community.
IAGeWeb has been very blessed this past year with postcards donated by David Shedlock,
from his vast collection. I have set up a new page to view the postcards for Jones county.
This new page is open for adding additional postcards. If you have vintage postcards you
would like to add, feel free to send them in. If you have not yet seen this page, you can
view it here, http://iagenweb.org/jones/postcards/index_postcards.html
If any of you are interested in becoming a County Coordinator for Jones County, or just
finding out more information about being a County Coordinator, please contact the IAGenWeb
Welcome Hostess for more information, the email is: welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org or
you can contact me directly for questions. Jones County would love to have a real County
Coordinator, and no longer be an orphan county.
