Hi everyone. I will soon be adding a 1924 Grinnell College directory to our
web site. It has been scanned page by page and donated for our use. A
generous woman in California found the book in an antique store and sent it.
The college students are from all over the country.
The only downside is that the names will not show up in the "freefind"
Just a reminder- if any of you have resources for the county, please offer
to do lookups or copy and send to me for the web site. It will be greatly
appreciated by all who find previously unknown information because of your
I will let you know when I get the addition completed.
Have a nice three-day weekend!!

Happy Mothers Day everyone.
Just letting you know I've added a couple of things to the Poweshiek County
Gen Web page.
It's not quite done, but I have added a page with 1875 township maps..and I
have added a couple of pictures to the photo page.
Reminder: If anyone has any information for the site, please contact me.
David, you should be able to get an 1870 census through your local library
if you don't get a response on this list.
I can check 1880 or 1900 if you need those
