November 2016 - February 2017-- Thanks to the work of volunteers Mary Reicks and Pat Sheridan, we have an excellent spreadsheet for all burials and names on gravestones in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery in Lawler. Pat and Mary Reicks have uploaded hundreds of pictures to the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project and to Find-a-Grave. Their comprehensive spreadsheet of every burial has been expanded with data from the 1930's WPA Project.

Ongoing - Volunteer Phillip Thomas has been sharing photos of his collections of postcards and other early Chickasaw County items. These are being uploaded to the appropriate pages of this site.
