Items concerning Iowa

Buchanan County Sandbox

  • Blurb – bring online out more???
    • FamilySearch Catalog – The FamilySearch catalog contains descriptions and access information for all genealogical materials (including books, online materials, microfilm, microfiche, and publications) in their collection. Use Historical Records to search for specific individuals in genealogical records.
  • Iowa some counties have these under almost every heading:
    • Many Biography records for Buchanan County have been microfilmed or abstracted. Some of those copies are available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. For a listing of their holdings, see the topic details from their catalog.
    • Code eliminates them
    • Does highlight the need users may have
      • We can add selected links to Catalog, but not all
        • Land? Probate? Vital?
      • Style guide
        • FHL template yes when it has only one topic
        • For specific titles when more than one topic

County Courthouses

  • We’ll do better with these – addresses, phones

Civil War

  • Would you like us to move the Online Civil War Records above the Civil War Wiki pages for regiments, etc.?

Newspapers on Ancestry

  • County pages may list several:
    • The Appanoose Times. 1881-1882 Centerville, IA, USA. Online at: ($)
    • The Weekly Citizen. 1870-1872 Centerville, IA, USA. Online at: ($)
    • The Centerville Citizen. 1872-1873, 1881 Centerville, IA, USA. Online at: ($)
    • Centerville Times. 1881-1882 Centerville, IA, USA. Online at: ($)
  • Is this fix by code OK?
    • Newspapers and other Appanoose items at Ancestry — index and images, ($)
    • Or just fix the ending of each one to at Ancestry ($) and do nothing for counties which have not listed them?
