Hello Mills County Researchers,
Hopefully you have all been in a safe place working on your Family History,
these last few months. The weather has been a bit crazy in Iowa, and other
places this year.
I would just like to share a couple things with you all. As I was adding
some obituaries to our Mills County Obituary Board,
http://iagenweb.org/boards/mills/obituaries/, I noticed although we have
over 2500 obituaries, we have very few photos with these obituaries. I
wanted to make sure that everyone knows photos can be added to these
obituary boards. If you have a photo of a person listed on the board, you
would like to add, please email me at kbtechau(a)gmail.com. I would be glad
to add this for you. In the last six months, we have added over 100
obituaries to the board. Many thanks to Lois Shaul, Kathy Weaver, Cheryl
Moonen, and Marlene Skalberg for adding these historical treasures.
I also wanted to remind all of you about the free resource available
through the Malvern Library. They have generously offered “The Malvern
Leader” (1884-2017) free to the public,
http://iagenweb.org/mills/news/index.htm. These old newspapers covered
many towns, so, if you haven’t checked it out yet, you might find some fun
family history there.
If you have a camera and like walking cemeteries, please keep us in mind,
https://iowagravestones.org/cemeteries.php?cid=65. We still have some
cemeteries that need photos. There are some small cemeteries, such as the
County Poor Farm, East Liberty, Godsey and others, without any photos.
Lastly, we have added a new section for vintage postcards,
http://iagenweb.org/mills/postcards/index.htm, I hope we can all add to
this with our old postcards. David Shedlock has been sharing many of his
collection throughout Iowa. If you would like share your vintage
postcards, please email me.
ps: Fold3 is offering some free searching this memorial weekend.

As you may remember, I do not have access to any Mills County documents,
but if you ever have things that you need retyped, or proofed, please do
keep me in mind. My grandfather and his siblings grew up in Mills
County; although none stayed there past 1920, it was always dear to
Congrats on all of your recent accomplishments!
