Thankful Thursday: Iowa WPA Graves

One of the most helpful sites for researching my husband’s Iowa ancestors is the Iowa WPA Graves 1930 Survey. On the main page you will see all of the counties that have been transcribed thus far.

Counties Not Included

Counties not indexed by the 1930s WPA Graves Registration Project, and thus not included in the database on this web site, include Appanoose, Benton, Cherokee, Clinton, Dallas, Des Moines, Dubuque, Hardin, Humboldt, Ida, Iowa, Jasper, Lyon, Monona, Osceola, Pottawattamie, and Warren.

I’m rather disappointed that one of them, Des Moines County, is not one of the ones available, but I am thankful for an associated site the Iowa Gravestones Photo Project.  I’ve visited it many times too, and even added some grave photos we have taken over the years.

Thank you too, to Geneabloggers blog for promoting this meme.
