Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
In case you haven't heard about Iowa's Old Press, let me introduce you to
newspapers and newspaper scrapbooks from all over Iowa. This project was
begun by three very dedicated ladies, Sharyl Ferrall, Cathy Joynt-Labath &
Linda Ziemann, who were determined to keep Iowa newspapers "free" to
researchers. These ladies do all of the work (adding your submissions and
utility work) on the websites.
"IOWA OLD PRESS http://www.iowaoldpress.com/
The press in Iowa dates to May 11, 1836 when the first issue of the Du Buque
Visitor was printed on an 1822 vintage hand-press.
This website is dedicated to the scores of newspapers that followed. They
are the printed chronicles of the lives and times of Iowa and Iowans. Join
us as we step back in time and learn how the Press reported the news &
influenced our Iowa ancestors in the 1800's and early 1900's........ "
If you have old newspaper articles you would like to have submitted you can
send them to me and I will add them to Montgomery County's website as well
as the Iowa Old Press, or you can submit them directly to the IOP using the
submission form on the IOP site. Visit Montgomery County's newspaper
entries at http://www.iowaoldpress.com/IA/Montgomery/index.html
