Good Morning, Iowa genealogists!
You are invited to a September Bazaar!! That's right a 'September Bazaar'!
Filled with wonderful IAGenWeb counties just waiting for one of you to take them
home. No purchase necessary! Just Great fun to be had by all! Each booth at the
bazaar displays one of IAGenWeb's six wonderful orphan counties! Our orphans are
Greene, Keokuk, Lucas, Montgomery, Osceola and Tama. They come in various sizes,
shapes and colors. You'll find something that will please everyone!
Each of our six 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 our internet connection and a very
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 Greene, Keokuk, Lucas, Montgomery, Osceola or Tama
counties email us for an application. We'd love to welcome you into our family!
It you have an interest in adopting a county and it isn't available at this time
you can ask to have your name placed on a waiting list and when your county of
interest comes open we will contact you to see if you are still interested.
There's a waiting list for every county in Iowa.
This invitation is open also to any current county coordinators who would like
to adopt another county. Just email us and we will get an application to you!
IAGenWeb Welcome Hostesses
Labor Day is here and school is about to start! Indian summer is wonderful
and you can feel Fall is in the air! Football and tailgate parties are
underway and it's time to think about fun and fascinating indoor activities
to keep us busy. Like... how about adopting an Iowa county!!!
We have a group of six wonderful counties now that need you--no, not the
other guy, YOU. You don't have to live in or close to Iowa. You don't have
to be a computer whiz, and you don't have to know all there is to know about
genealogy. If you're reading this, you have the necessary equipment and an
interest in family history. That's most of what you need, right there.
The available counties are Greene, Keokuk, Lucas, Montgomery, Osceola and
Pocahontas. Why not visit them and think about all of the possible things
you could do to improve the county, then pick your favorite! Send an email
request for information and an application form to
welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org . We know you'll be glad you did!
