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
Does anyone out there know if Cushing's newspaper is archived and how far back does the archive go? Is it microfilmed or still in fragile paper mode?
TY in advance,

I'm looking for my mother-in-law and her mother. My mother-in-law was born on
Oct 18, 1905. She was a twin to her brother Theodore (Teddy) I sent off for
her birth Certificate to the Woodbury County Registrar (Patrick F Gill) and
they searched Woodbury County birth book for 1902 through 1907 and they couldn't
find her. She attended Cathedral of the Epiphany School at 10th & Douglas. In
1924, according to the city directory she lived at 610 8th street. In 1925 she
lived at 205 11th street.
I understand that mandated registration did not begin in Iowa until the
1940's. she also had a twin brother and older sister that was born in Sioux City.
Can anyone tell me where I should look from here.
If you have dates of death, the Sioux City Public Library will look-up obits
for a small fee. They respond quickly.
If you don't know dates of death, the library also has cemetery indexes for
the three municipal cemeteries there (Floyd, Graceland and Logan). These
indexes have the dates of burial which provide a clue to the date an
obituary might be found.
I recommend this service provided by the library. I did my own obituary
searches a couple times when I was in Sioux City. Then, I found that it was
much more efficient to ask them to look.

Does anyone know what information the Iowa, 1920 federal census : soundex and
population schedules includes. Will it tell me the birthplace of the people
Also does anyone know what the soundex number is for the surname Durkin?
The address where I got my certificates is:
Attention: Vital Statistics Department
Woodbury County Court House
620 Douglas Street
Sioux City, Iowa 51101-1248
I took that info off the envelops they gave me to request more certificates.
There is a fee. I think its $10 if they have to do the lookup, but not sure.

Looking for information on Peter Little born about 1852 in MA and family. Married Dorcas Cole 1882 in Plymouth and is listed in 1885 census with children William born 1876 IL, Mary 1880 Plymouth, Roy 1882 Plymouth and Ellen 1884 Woodbury.
They are found in the 1885 census in Union TWP, Woodbury. Peter is found in the 1910 census married to Ida in Sioux City TWP.
Dorcus is listed as having 13 children in the 1920 census, I can account for 6.
Have been unable to locate any information on this family besides the 2 census records. Any help would be very much appreciated.
After having this comp. for over 4 yrs. I'm still scared to try something new. I have had help with defraging before but here is what I did. Took off the screen saver, scandisk and found I hadn't defragged for 161 days . Was told I still didn't have to but I wanted to. It took 30 minutes to complete. Does that sound normal? Very slow starting and after getting to 70% very very slow and 80% was worse. I felt that would be a good time to panic but NO. Just put the screen saver on and plan to write and ask if someone would send to me at yune(a)willinet.net. and OK everything. Really don't want the world to know. Thanks June
