Have you thought about becoming an Iowa County Coordinator? Right now
is one of the best times to volunteer! Iowa has six beautiful counties
available and ready to be adopted.
Greene ( http://iagenweb.org/greene/ ) - Take a leisurely stroll and see
for yourself that Greene would be a wonderful county to coordinate. The
site has very nice, newly designed pages. Any new coordinator coming on
board would have a great advantage with the new pages. So much
information and room for more.
Lucas ( http://iagenweb.org/lucas/ ) -- the home page has a new look!
Lots of great photos have been posted. The potential for new data is
Fremont ( http://iagenweb.org/fremont/) - "A view from the Attic" is
without a doubt a favorite. It's a very well organized county hoping
for a new coordinator.
Guthrie ( http://iagenweb.org.guthrie/ ) -- has a nice design and
color. Lots of great data and plenty of room for growth! This is a
good county to give your personal touch.
Buena Vista (http://iagenweb.org/buenavista/ ) - very well organized and
nicely designed. This county has lots of great records with a potential
for a lot more.
Monroe (http://iagenweb.org/monore ) -- the Coal Mines information is
really fascinating! Anyone with a history with miners would find this
county a real plus. Monroe is anxious to have a new coordinator.
As you can see, Iowa has wonderful counties to choose from. When you
have decided which one you will make as your own, drop us a note at
welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org with your choice and we will send you
an application and get you going! We will also answer any questions
that you may have.

Welcome to the IAUNION 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 email@example.com
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.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
