Researcher Comments About This Website

"Again...many, many thanks to you and all of your volunteers for their great work....the best in Iowa!!" ~Deb E.
"Just a couple of comments re: J.J. Baker's parents' names... (they are my great-great-grandparents) -I've seen his father listed as John D. A. Baker in a Ypsilanti, MI census where Julius John was born. And, his mother's full maiden name was Hulda Adelia Hubbard. Thanks for posting and saving obits so people like me can find them! ~Best regards, M. Taylor"
"I do want to tell you that adding the obits to your site is such a wonderful tool for genealogists.  I wish the other states had a site as excellent as what yours is.  I have visited many of the genweb sites but yours is the BEST.  I thank you for that your work is appreciated by more of us than you could know." ~ G.G.
