I think this is a good idea. Then as I or others encounter a family
member in that location, we can search on it and find other
researchers with possible similar interest. My primary counties are:
Dubuque, Jones, and Jackson. I have some interest in Delaware,
Buchannan, and Linn. I also have a few family members scattered in
various locations in western Iowa.
