Featured Project: Census

The 1950 U.S. Federal Census is due to be released in April 2022, which is VERY EXCITING! However, several Federal and State censuses have yet to be transcribed and made available on IAGenWeb. Learn more and please consider volunteering to transcribe one or more Cerro Gordo County census schedules this year.
