The "Greatest Little Show in Iowa" has arrived and four tents are going up
today for your viewing! What a show we have for you to take part in! If you
love genealogy and you love Iowa, then this is the place for you!
What could be better than visiting one of our tents and adopting one of our
orphan counties? You don't have to be an expert, although knowing a bit
about HTML, FTPing, and maintaining a web site gives you a head start. Even
those things aren't absolutely essential because the rest of us are here to
help newcomers. Part of the fun of being a county coordinator is learning on
We have a nice choice of counties for you: Fremont, Montgomery, Osceola,
Pocahontas. If you're interested, please email us with your questions or to
ask for an application form.
Welcome Hostess Co-Chairs
Good Evening, Iowa genealogists!
You are invited to an Open house!! That's right an Open House!
There is no entrance fee! The tour is Free! You are invited to take a tour
of our three wonderful orphan counties! Our orphans are Montgomery,
Pocahontas, Osceola. They come in various sizes, shapes and colors. You'll
find something for everyone!
Each of our three orphan counties are in need of a bit of TLC. Someone who
loves genealogy, enjoys giving and likes sharing with others. If you adopt a
county, you will benefit other researchers, join a great team of volunteers,
as well as have an experience that's both fun and creative.
What are the requirements you ask? An Internet connection, a very basic
knowledge of HTML, and the ability (or willingness to learn) to FTP (upload)
files to a server. Most of us started with the Internet connection and a
shaky knowledge (some shakier than others) of the other two requirements. We
learned on the job and kept learning, often from each other. There are no
dumb questions and there is always someone handy to help answer a question.
Many tips and helps are posted on the IAGenWeb Forum for all coordinators.
If you're interested in hosting Montgomery, Pocahontas,Osceola counties
email us for an application. We'd love to welcome you into our family!
Just email us and we will get an application to you!
