USGenWeb Project Linn County Banner IAGenWeb Project


If this is your first visit to the boards, please follow the basic instructions listed below:

1) All queries and surnames must have a Linn County, Iowa connection.

2) Queries should contain only one surname [or two when including a spouse]. Your first line will encourage or discourage a response. Try to say something about your search. Common surnames without detail draw NO responses. However, if you were asking about an Emma Jane Osborne, you might gain some real attention.

3) A formula for a good query to stand up and be noticed:
    a. Full name with surname in CAPITAL Letters
   b. Time frame or dates of specific events
   c. Location family was in or resided in the county.

4) Because of privacy issues, queries which involve people who may still be alive CAN NOT be posted on IAGenWeb Project pages and will be removed.
