July 1, 2012 began the new term for our IAGenWeb Leadership Team. The Iowa State Coordinator is now Stephen D. William and the Assistant State Coordinator is Constance Hall. Lynn McCleary and Cheryl Siebrass are the Welcome Hostesses.
IAGenWeb has some beautiful counties that need coordinators:
They are ready for someone to give them the care they deeply deserve. It is not necessary to live in Iowa to be a county coordinator. The coordinator’s main duties 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.

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!

Looking for help with the De Reus family - all members. Harold Arthur De Reus died in Minnesota but does not seem to be buried there. Would like to know for sure what cemetery he is buried in and its location. This is the same for his wife. Harold Arthur De Reus born Oct 19, 1921 in Mingo Jasper County, died 29 Oct 2003 in Steel County, Minnesota. His wife was Barbara A. Finch died in Steel County at age 86. No known date of birth or death. Harold had family in Mahaska, Marion and Jasper counties so not sure if he was buried with them.
Can someone please help me with find where my 3rd great-parents are buried in Pella? Arie De Reus born 1811 in Zuid Holland, Netherlands, died 1894 in Pella, Marion County, Iowa. Magcheltje "Maggie" (Van Der Kreek) De Reus born 1802 in Zuid Holland, Netherlands died 1881 in Pella, Marion County, Iowa. Since they died in Pella I was hoping there might be some kind of record of where they were buried. What cemeteries were in the Pella area in 1881 when Maggie died?
Arie was the son of Pieter Arisszn De Reus and Neeltje. Maggie was the daughter of Arij Van Der Kreek and Marija De Koomen. Arie and Maggie were the parents of 9 children of which only 4 lived to come to America with them in 1850. The four sons who survived were Arie, Pieter, Marinus and Neelus (aka Ned).
