Iowa Genealogy Websites

Many of those interested in local history have a strong interest in their family history.  Family Tree Magazines 2010 Best State Websites includes these Iowa websites:


Iowa Genealogical Society
This active genealogy group has provided county-by-county research guides, an alphabetical index of pioneer ancestors, a list of available naturalization papers and more.

Iowa GenWeb Project
While all the state sites in the USGenWeb Project are useful, this Hawkeye State project goes way beyond the usual links to county pages. Check out the many special projects, including the family group sheet collection, gravestone photo project, transcribed history books and state censuses, Civil War and WWI compilations, newspaper clippings, and WPA graves registration survey.
