Welcome to a Marion County IAGenWeb work place

This site is intended for both creating and viewing materials to be submitted to the Marion county page of IAGenWeb as well as for editing submissions to the Surname index page. Note that some of these pages will automatically be reflected on the Marion county IAGenWeb page while others will not (but will be used to create pages for this site later when the database becomes more mature).

Obits
Use this menu item if you wish to view the obituary index that is currently being built for Marion county newspapers. If you wish to contribute and add some, please use the Contact menu to communicate this. You will then be given access to do so. Although the Pella Chronicle is the current focus, any other county newspaper would also be welcome.
Surnames
Use this menu item if you wish to view the surname index. This is equivalent to what is found at the Marion site, but this is intended to supplant that. This version will be more dynamic, allow anyone to quickly submit surnames of interest and also to expand on the information about a particular surname that will be made available. This site will also allow for better searching capabilities. If you wish to edit a previously submitted entry, use this menu and go to the table-version and look for either your name, email, or the surname of interest. Click on the surname to edit its information. If you wish to submit a new one, choose the Create menu item on the right after choosing the Surnames menu.
Interments
Use this menu item if you wish to view the cemetery database that is being built for Marion county cemeteries, currently focusing on Oakwood Cemetery in Pella. If you wish to contribute and add some, please use the Contact menu to communicate this. You will then be given access to do so. Although the Oakwood Cemetery is the current focus, any other county cemetery would also be welcome.
