Iowa has a rockin' state census. The 1925 census is a dream for genealogists, with questions on parents, religion, education, marriage, for every member of the household. Let's see how we can help work through though tough Iowa research problems.See More
"I just ran across the Nebraska State Genealogical Society's Tombstone Project. (whew)
It's like Find a Grave for just Nebraska! I actually found several of my ancestors on here, which is surprising…"
"I checked census records on Heritage Quest in 1920. I didn't find them, but the twins should have shown up if they were enumerated. Maybe they were moving or missed on the census or they may not have been indexed yet. Don't know! Next I…"

Beginning Family History Researcher

(when did my great grandparents from Nebraska visit the ocean??) We've lost quite a few people in Dad's generation over the past few years, so I've become kind of obsessed in solving the mysteries.
