There's also a link on the page for learning more about becoming a county coordinator. The counties we have available are: Adams, Calhoun, Carroll, Cerro Gordo, Emmet, Floyd, Jones, Jackson, Lyon, Mahaska, Montgomery, Mitchell, Pottawattamie, Poweshiek, Sac and Tama. Stop in and take a look at those you're interested in. The links to each of the counties are available at http://iagenweb.org/state/colist.php. See something you like?

I feel these people are probably buried in St Patrick's but just didn't get a headstone. So my question is - does anyone have contact information for that person or persons who has access to the records for St Patrick's Cemetery, Garryowen? Nicholas LOUGHLIN Catherine HYDE LOUGHLIN Margaret WALSH HYDE Catherine HYDE HAMIS Unnamed son of William & Margaret WALSH HYDE When I visited the cemetery last year, I was struck by the open space directly around William HYDE's obelisk tombstone. And that his son in law was buried close by, but not his wife nor his daughter! Another clue - some obits even mention burial taking place in St Patrick's, but I can't locate their grave.
