Beautiful, wonderful website!
Even though we are probably not related, I laud your wonderful website.
I was looking for husband's: Dwyer, Donovan, Hanrahan in Plymouth County, (LeMars, Hinton, Potosi) 1880s, -- all had relatives in Sioux City also.: married into McKenzie, Leveiller, McCormick, McCullough, and Patton/Patten families.
Thank you for the chance to view all your work.~M.G. McK

First, I'd like to say it's WONDERFUL what you've done for the website!! So much enthusiasm and forthcoming interest from your community....I also wanted to praise the work on your site for the Opera Houses! I ordered, from Amazon, a used copy of The Opera Houses of Iowa noted on your website, but even tho I found no photos, you are inspiring me to keep going! These were monumental in the life of early communities and treasures to remember.....Most respectfully, keep up the great work. ~MKJ

Thank you for posting the story on my grandparents' marriage. I greatly appreciate the work you've done, and I'm sure others appreciate it tremendously as well. The story from the LeMars Globe-Post provides a window into the lives of my grandparents that never would have been available otherwise. Thanks so much. ~M. C.

 

Researcher Comments in 2011

We are thrilled to find today the obituary you posted for John Brehm. We have been searching for this piece of our family history for years. Thanks so much for your voluntary efforts--it is much appreciated.
We are planning a trip there in the fall and will be able to do research on location at that time. We are very excited about being able to visit the Melbourne Cemetery and find so many of our long lost ancestors there. We are indebted to you and your work to make this possible. Again, many "thanks."
~Laurie B. and Sue B.

"Thank you so much for your work on the Plymouth County Genealogy

Earl & Laura Williams of Perry Township. I enjoyed the list of school
teachers (where I found my grandmother), and being able to read an
obit from my grandfather." ~Linda McK.

Plymouth County ...Read About Our Ancestors and Their Stories! Don't miss these great memories!

Bios and Interviews Index link

Share your Plymouth County ancestor's stories here! Many of our relatives wrote out their memories for the next generation to read. These were probably never published, except into the hearts of their children and grandchildren. Perhaps your ancestor was interviewed. Email their bios or interviews to Linda and I will see that their stories are preserved for all Plymouth County researchers. Be sure to include the author's name and the date when written, if known. Thanks!
