Subject: [IA..Dubuque] POORHOUSE Information
Date: Sun, 27 Jan 2002 06:19:26 -0600
We would like to invite you to re-visit our website, The POORHOUSE STORY (a
clearinghouse for information about 19th century American poorhouses) at
We just posted a link to a page with the list of poorhouse residents from
the 1880 Census for DUBUQUE County.
At the homepage (link above) click on POORHOUSES BY STATE, then on IOWA on
the table of states. If you will scroll down to the section on Records, you
will see the entry (with a yellow NEW arrow). (NOTE: If you have visited the
site recently, you may have to click on REFRESH on your browser to see the
There are other pages on the site which may give you some interesting
perspective on poorhouses. They are off the homepage and include: the
HISTORY page and the LETTER TO GENEALOGISTS as well as FEATURED ARTICLES.
There are great tips for researching poorhouse records for yourself on the
RECORDS page; and you might want to subscribe to our (almost) monthly
newletter (which you can do in the lower right corner of the homepage).
The information on our site will only grow through the submissions of
generous readers. If you would like to e-mail me ... please do so off-list
because I cannot maintain subscriptions to as many lists as we post messages
on. (You can use an e-mail link off one of our web pages.)
We hope you enjoy the site!
