To join Ancestry.com and access our 1.2 billion online genealogy records,
I am researching an Allen family from Black Hawk County. My Allens came from Waterloo. They are by far the hardest family I have ever had to research. The farthest back I can go is a Rex Charles Allen, (possibly Charles Rex Allen) who was born in the late 1920s or early 1930s. He married a Patricia, and had 3 children. I am interested in finding out more about this family - Rex's siblings, parents, etc. If this is the Allen family you are researching, please contact me - I need all the help I can get! Thanks, Angela
