November 2016 - May 2017-- Thanks to the work of volunteers Luke and 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, Luke, and Mary 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 - The county coordinator found a large number of orphan files on the site's server. Many of these are obituaries in JPG form, which are being transcribed and uploaded to the Obituaries pages. The list has been whittled down to 123 files.
