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
My ancestor, Joseph Marion Holan, Sr. died near Chelsea in 1906. Is there
likely to be an obit in a Tama County newspaper? Microfilm? How can we
arrange to see? Is there a possibility of that way finding where in Bohemia
he came from? Any other way?
Thanks to all.

I've just joined this mailing list. Please excuse me if this question has been asked before; I keep getting bounced out of the mailing list archives on Rootsweb.
LDS Film no. 1764591 contains obituaries for Tama County in the late 1800s. I'm interested in one published in February 1887. The reference for it is GTN.
I couldn't find the list of abbreviations on the film. Can someone tell me what GTN stands for? Thank you for any assistance.

For those of you doing Internet research, have you checked out the following
It seems to have a lot of interesting links, worth taking a look anyway.
Also, we are invited to add links. For description see the director's email
I do not know how many people on this APG email list have visited the
United States Internet Genealogy Society website, but I am inviting
people to take a look: http://www.usigs.org
As state project chairman, I am seeking volunteers to help me add links
for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. It is a
massive task to collect all of the historical and genealogy society
links for each state plus other important links and keep them active and
current. It would be nice if I had a contact person for each state. You
can visit the state project at: http://www.usigs.org/library.gensoc.
The society is also looking for people who might be interested in
helping with our books online transcription project or assisting the
webmaster by adding new material as it becomes available.
