As I am new to searching in Iowa, can someone advise
how is the best way to look for an obituary. My
grandfather's sister, MARY ALLISON, died in Monroe
County 27 Feb 1917, and would dearly love to obtain an
obituary for her. Does the library have any records
or the newspaper itself have records? And what is the
name of the newspaper that would have an obituary for
someone who lived in Hiteman?

One of my friends went to the National Geographic website and found that she could get the general migration pattern of her family by participating in their study. For $30, they send you a kit for you to provide your "mouth swab" to them and then they put it into a general DNA computer program. From there it traces your ancestors all the way back through American to European and (I am hearing from her) to the very first people your genes came from.
She was pleased to see that both her husband and her families came from different areas of the world, but came together in the same eastern state (and area) where they met and married. (She now lives in Calif.). She tells me this was all from the swab and, as I believe, not from any other info she gave them as to her ancestors.
I haven't yet sent mine, but intend to today.
