Why Post Your Ancestry Info Here?

The Van Buren Co. IAGenWeb Boards are the perfect vehicle for researchers to share information in a convenient manner. This information will be available in a searchable format for years to come.

This can be done by entering Obit. info, Bible Records, etc. that may enable other researchers to "find you" through a trail you've left behind. Thanks for sharing!
