What We're Working on Now (WWWON)

WWWON is designed to recognize the works in progress of our volunteers and to encourage new volunteers to join in. Please choose Contact above for questions, or Volunteer if you are ready to pitch in.

Your county coordinator has taken photos of the tombstones at the Cagley and Deerfield Cemeteries. These have all been uploaded to the Iowa Gravestone Photo Project. He is working to create a complete listing of the known burials for these sites. These listings will include the names from the WPA survey, Find-a-Grave, and any other sources the coordinator is able to identify.

This effort is part of a six-year plan to document every known burial in Chickasaw County. The COVID-19 pandemic has made the five-year plan a six year plan, but we are otherwise on track.

Your county coordinator is looking for volunteers to upload obituaries from 1899-1901 from the New Hampton Public Library Digital Archives.

--Conni McDaniel Hall (IAGenWeb coordinator for Dallas and Henry Counties) provided a link to the Iowa "Non-Population Census" for 1880. I am in the process of transcribing it, so that the surnames and other content can be found with the Search function. In the meantime, you can find it here.

Ongoing - The county coordinator found a large number of orphan files on the site's server. Many of these are obituaries in JPG form, which are being transcribed and uploaded to the Obituaries pages. The list has been whittled down to 123 files.
