Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
Good to know your involved in Poweshiek County. With all your back
ground and expertise with the IGA you'll be a real asset this page.
Looking forward to getting in touch after the first of the year. I'm
working on the Marvin, Covault, Schneekloth familles that resided in
Poweshiek County. More details later.
Be writing to you, Helen J Phillips
Welcome. I am glad someone has finally taken over these two lists. I
belong to both and yes they are very quiet lists.
I am beginning to believe that only the ancestors are on these lists no
descendants. My great grandparents Perry R. and Adelia (Smith) SPENCER
moved to Tama County in 1867 with their three children Ellis and Emory and
Emily. They lived in Tama County for about tent to fifteen years before
moving over to Poseshiek county where they died in 1896 and 19898.

Subject: [IAPOWESH] Hello
Hi everyone. I have just taken over as administrator of this list and the
Poweshiek County IaGenWeb Page.
This list has been very quiet. There are about 90 subscribers. Right now
everybody probably has something on their minds beside genealogy, so maybe
after the holidays we can do a roll call and get acquainted.
Just wanted to say hello and wish everyone happy holidays.
My husband's mother grew up in Poweshiek County so we do have a connections
to the area. We plan to visit soon and get more material for the site soon.
