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
Current queries for all the above named counties have now been posted.
Please let me know if there are any additions or corrections.
In Cedar County I also posted some family gedcoms files so that people
can download them if they'd like. Most of them are Lowden folks.
Still working on the Civil War index for Iowa county but the 1850 census
is now available! Yippee Skippee! I'll get it linked tonight for you.

Polly Skidmore Thorpe lived for a time with her daughter, Polly Ann Thorpe,
and son-in-law, Charles Lee Davis, in Tama County.
I have a photocopy of the 1883 History of Tama County, Iowa, biography of
Charles Lee Davis.
Polly Ann Skidmore was born 22 March 1784, married John Thorpe 26 September,
1804, and died 17 November 1882. Their daughter, Polly Ann Thorpe was born 8
February 1818, married Charles Lee Davis 1841, and died 9 November 1900.
Would like to hear from others working on the Thorpe/Davis familles.
Welcome to the IATAMA mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
