April 1st update

Our office is still closed. The office is inside the Fort Dodge Public Library. They have not been told when they will reopen.So.

I have finished doing research with Dave Peterson from Boxholm. Research was done on his mothers Guth/Good side.Working on research for Glenn Stark, for his wife’s side. The last name is Munech,and variations in the 1700’s. . I did find a free site in Germany. I asked them for assistance, but they don’t do that. .Research for Jason Roskup, looking for a birth certificate for April 1915 for Mary Roskup/Roskopf. Could not find a brith certificate, but did find a baptism record for her.Research for David Mathias, looking for a death cert for George Hutchinson for 1908.I could not find one. I refered him to the free Advantage Preservation Newspapers for Webster County and the free site, Familysearch.org.

  1. I have enjoyed reading some of your postings, I hope you can open soon, the whole country is anxious. my name is John Adams, I lived in Harford Pennsylvania, we have an annual fair there, in 1890 a cabin was built on location at the fair grounds. during the dedication a cane with carvings and inscriptions was presented to the Honorable Cyrus C. Carpenter, Governor of Iowa, He was born in Harford Pa. This year we have rebuilt the Log Cabin and moved it to a new location. in August we will be re-dedicating it again. I was wondering if any of the personal items from the Governor may have been turned over to a museum or put on display somewhere in Webster County, I don’t think he had heirs, I look forward to hearing from you, thank you.
