      The State of Iowa is considering closing their records to the public.
      This has already been done in the State of Illinois where you have to
      rely on someone in the courthouse to look things up for you for a fee of
      $2.00 and if you want a copy, that
      is $8.00 more.

      Many of the people from the East went to Iowa and you may need to obtain
      some of their records, if not now, in the future.

      Even if you are not an Iowa resident, please be part of the numbers to be
      heard about how important it is to have these available. Send an email


      Please forward this message to:

      1) as many people you know who reside in Iowa
      2) as many genealogical societies as you know
      3) as many other organizations whose voices might make a difference
      4) everyone you know who are involved in genealogy and history research
