Welcome, Thanks for Visiting!
As the early pioneers moved from the industrial areas of the east through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana
and Illinois, and crossed the mighty Mississippi River on Iowa's eastern border, many settled on the
rich farmland of what is now Iowa. Some stayed in Iowa for the remainder of their lives while others
moved on to the promised riches of the western lands. Perhaps your ancestors were among those
who made their home in Iowa for a little while or for a long while, as mine did.
Even if they stayed in Iowa for only a short time, your ancestors perhaps left behind records which will
provide a look into their lives. If you need help finding those often elusive records, I can help.
Sometimes a single record will reveal information that has been hidden for years. I remember the
person who had searched for many years for anything that would link two families. A letter held in a
personal collection by the small local library held the proof. What a thrill!!
I specialize in Iowa research, but am not limited to Iowa or the greater Midwest. Iowa's settlers
immigrated to this rolling fertile land between the Mighty Mississippi and the Wide Missouri from
nearly every country of the world.
