We are pround to announce that our searchable Local Index Databases have increased by two!
The anticipated index for the Civil War Enlistment Papers is now up and running. As you may recall, these papers are for the men who volunteered for the Union Army in Iowa after June of 1862. We are regularaly adding more soldiers to this database, so please check frequently!
Also, we have added the Mortality Schedules for the 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 Federal Census. These schedules list the people who died in the twelve months prior to each census being taken in June. Depending on the year, these schedules provide a variety of information, including the cause of death. This index is also being updated on a weekly basis.
So please take the time to explore our Local Index Databases this spring—and watch your family tree flower!
