Genealogical Research in Iowa

Why are you an Iowan? How did your family wind up here? What is the explanation in your family lore? If you wanted to verify the tales, how would you do it? Wednesday on Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe will speak with Theresa Liewer of the Iowa Genealogical Society and Steve Williams of IAGenWeb.org about genealogical research, the things you can learn from it and what resources are available in the state. We’ll hear about how Iowa’s past census makes the state a unique place to do research and volunteer projects working to create online databases of public records for each of Iowa’s 99 counties.
