Beth McAleece Mellentine

I will be happy to do some look ups on Dubuque County even though I am here in Denver, Colorado. As an old Dubuque resident. I have the books DUBUQUE: THE ENCYCLOPEDIA, and DUBUQUE ON THE MISSISSIPPI. I also have the three Bicentennial 1976 Newspaper books on the stages of the growth of Dubuque and best of all, I have the Federal Center that I can also use. So if I can be of any help to family searchers, I would be glad to help


Eugene Jaeger

 If anyone needs help in research for Dubuque County I will be glad to do it for them, I was born in Worthington, have lived and now retired in Dubuque, genealogy has been a hobby of mine for the past 15 years, between trying to finish my family tree, I have lots of time to help others, and I do it for FREE.


Kelly Atwood

I have a book I would like to volunteer to do lookups in. My ancestors that came through Dubuque were there around 1857-1880. The book is called "RUFFCORN - An All American Family" and it is a wonderful resource. It contains about 280 pages of photos, genealogies and histories of Ruffcorn descendants. There is an 85 page supplement as well. I am attaching a copy of the index for the supplement and will send a copy of the book index as soon as I get it scanned in and converted to Word. I have permission from one of the authors, Clark Ruffcorn, to post the indexes at county websites where Ruffcorns were known to have lived at one time. I hope this will help others to discover their Ruffcorn ancestors.

Al Miller

Will do look-ups in personal library, limited courthouse look-ups, and obituary file look-ups.

Colleen Galbreth

Will do look-ups in cemetery books for New Wine and Dodge townships. 


LeRoy Amacher

Will take digital photos of tombstones at Linwood, Mount Calvary or St. Johns Lutheran Cemeteries in Dubuque.  Before requesting the look-up check the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project page of the IAGenWeb. 



**Linwood Cemetery is now charging a $2 per name fee to look up burial plot locations.  If requesting a tombstone photo in Linwood Cemetery, please include the burial plot location to avoid this fee.**
