Mills County Researchers,
I just wanted to send a little update on things we have added this year on
our Mills County, IAGenWeb site.
Lois Shaul has transcribed hundreds, of names buried in the Glenwood

her, and get them all posted. She has moved on to the Ns. I am so grateful
to Lois for taking on this project,

<http://iagenweb.org/mills/deaths/dthbk2m.htm>*. This was a huge project.
A huge thank you to Marcia Hummel and Abigail Abeyta-Martin, for tackling

This year we added 87 new obituaries. Thank you, Marlene Skalberg, Kathy
Weaver, Sylvia Tongson, Jeri Moriarty, and Sherri. We now have over 2300

In May, I was able to visit Mills County. I spent some time, taking photos
of historic churches throughout Mills County, as well as, some overall
cemetery photos. To keep up to date on what has been added to Mills, from
month to month, be sure to check out the “What’s New” page on Mills County,
I feel very fortunate to be working with such a great group of researchers
here in Mills. I really appreciate the support of all of you. Of course,
we are always looking for new historical information, and vintage photos.
