Good Morning, 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 two wonderful orphan counties! Our orphans are Hancock
http://iagenweb.org/hancock/ and Keokuk http://iagenweb.org/keokuk/ . They come
in various sizes, shapes and colors. You'll find something for everyone!
Both of our 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 Hancock http://iagenweb.org/hancock/ and Keokuk
http://iagenweb.org/keokuk/ counties email us for an application. We'd love to
welcome you into our family!
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! Or
if you would like to be on our waiting list for some other county, just email

Come One Come All, it's fair time at IAGenWeb http://iagenweb.org// !! That's
right it's County Fair time!!
We have three exciting counties for you to visit: Clarke, Hancock,and Keokuk!
Which one will you take home? More fun than the Ferris wheel or the roller
coaster and a lot less stressful than the 'tilt a-whirl'! Come join the fun at
IAGenWeb! Visit one of our orphaned counties and pick the one that fits you
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 the job.
If you're interested in becoming a county coordinator and a part of the Great
IAGenWeb project, please email us welcom_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org with your
questions or to ask for an application form. We're waiting to hear from you!!
