Dear Legacy Family Tree Webinar Subscribers - if you have Iowa ancestors, you'll enjoy this brand new BONUS webinar (for webinar subscribers) from Ruby Coleman. I loved it so much that I'll be writing an entire article about how one of the topics Ruby spoke about helped to solve one of my German brick walls.
Follow the trail of your ancestor and fall in love with genealogical research in Iowa. First a territory and then a state, Iowa was settled by the mid-1830s. In this webinar, you will learn about the early history, settlements and geography of Iowa, along with the laws and records. Iowa is noted for their many years of state census. Those are discussed, along with examples, in the webinar.
