The IAGenWeb project is fortunate to be receiving the fruits of a large collector of historical post cards.  David Shedlock is currently sharing his collection of thousands of postcards and the IAGenWeb Welcome Hosts are sending them to the correct county coordinators to be displayed on the county sites.  This will be an ongoing project. 

Thank you David for your contribution to the IAGenWeb project!  If you find a postcard that was sent or received by one of your ancestors, let us know.  David may still have the postcard and would be happy to part with it if you would have the desire.

Below are the postcards for Black Hawk County.  The backs of the postcards are included because they may contain writing or pre-printed information about the front.  As time allows, I will transcribe the names that can be found on these postcards.   You never know what clue a postcard for your genealogical quest. Just click on the thumbnail to see the full size version.

Thanks for checking them out!~Karen
