Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
July 1, 2011 began the new term for our IAGenWeb Leadership Team. State Coordinator is now Ralph Leonard and the Assistant State Coordinator is Stephen D. Williams. Sharon Becker and I are the Welcome Hostesses.
We have three beautiful Orphan Counties that need coordinators: LINN http://iagenweb.org/linn/ * MARION http://iagenweb.org/marion/ * and TAMA http://iagenweb.org/tama/ .
It is not necessary to live in Iowa to be a county coordinator. The main duties of a coordinator include answering email requests for research assistance, providing newly transcribed information, and maintaining the site, mostly through minimizing broken links. We'd prefer a coordinator have at least basic knowledge of how to create web pages, either by writing their own code or using web design software, but this is not required to apply.
Read more about the position at http://iagenweb.org/state/primer.htm .
If you would like to adopt one of these counties, please drop us a line at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org
We would love hearing from you!
