Be sure to check the IAGenWeb Gravestone Photo Project for your ancestors! It is a database displaying over 1,000,000 Gravestones from all over Iowa. The database is growing larger everyday, so be sure to visit it often.

Another great resource is the new searchable database for the Linn County WPA Grave Registration Project. It is now complete, with 18,506 records for Linn county online!  It is also a state-wide database. Visitors can search one county at a time or they can plug in a surname and search the entire state database at once, over 1/2 million names presently. It also has soundex search ability and a very popular "Post-em Note" feature which allows visitors to add to or correct the existing data and also to make themselves known to yet to be discovered cousins.
