Welcome万家彩票官网网址 to the Madison County IAGenWeb site.

Madison County is located in the south central part of Iowa. It was created in 1846 and organized in 1849 from unorganized territory (Mahaska). Madison County has many covered bridges made famous in the book The Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller. It is also the 下载万家彩票 of the and the birthplace of John Wayne. The county seat is Winterset.

New Visitors...Read This First:  This website is unusual in that all of the available official county records directly related to genealogy (births, marriages, deaths and burials) are posted here. The only exception is that we are preserving privacy by not posting births and marriages newer than 100 years old or the data has not been released by state or county officials. The only "sets" of data related to official records left to post are yearly updates of the county births and marriages to accommodate the privacy issue and newly released data such as the Iowa Delayed Certificates of Birth.

In addition to the county records, we have transcribed and posted every Federal Census from 1850 through 1930 and every Iowa State Census from 1849 through 1895 plus 1925. Every gravestone has been photographed and posted and a team is dedicated to photographing new burials as they occur. We have attempted to post every obituary (over 34,600 on line) and have a continuing project to make the collection complete.

As you peruse the "What's New" section below, keep in mind that with the exception of the marriage and birth records we post each year the data we are adding is based on research by the Madison County team aimed at enhancing the official county, state and federal data already on line.

 

What's New

Daily Updates:  The County Coordinator, along with several members of the Madison County Genealogical Society are working daily on obituaries, cemetery records, marriage records, birth records, headstone photos, newspaper gleanings, the Madison County Family Tree, and other research pertaining to Madison County. This results in many daily updates of this website. If we were to list each change we have made over the past six months, you would have to plow through well over 100 pages of change documentation. However, we have elected to post complete data sets for your perusal as they are generated. See "1919 Madison County Births" and "1918 Madison County Marriages" below to access new data sets.

If you visited this website before and didn't find your relative's information, we urge you to look again and to look each time you visit here. In the period from Sep 2019 thru Mar 万家彩票官网网址, we have posted 457 new obituaries and added alternate obituaries to 52 already on line. Finally, cemetery records are regularly updated to reflect the most recent burials. Listed below are some of the highlights of What's New in the 12 months between April 01, 2019 and March 31, 万家彩票官网网址.

1919 Madison County Births - The complete set of Madison County births for calendar year 1919, comprised of 293 records, have been posted to our birth pages as of March 31, 万家彩票官网网址. To see the list of 1919 births, click here. To see them integrated with all births, select "Birth Records" on the left.

Vigilantes - If you thought that vigilantes died out with the old west, not so. In the early 1920s, Iowa bankers, tired of numerous armed robberies, organized Vigilante Committees in all 99 counties, mostly to have readily accessible trained posse members. An article regarding Madison County's vigilantes appeared in the Winterset News which has been posted under documents. There is also a link there that provides more information about the statewide program. (Posted 08 Apr  万家彩票官网网址)

1918 Madison County Marriages - The complete set of Madison County marriages for calendar year 1918, comprised of 166 records, have been posted to our Marriage List as of September 30, 2019. To see the list of 1918 marriages, click here. To see them integrated with all marriages, select "Marriage Records" on the left.

Random Birth Records - As a part of routine maintenance of the website as well as special projects, we may run across Madison County births not found in the official birth records that either haven't been included or for which additional information has been uncovered. They may come from other county's state census records, marriage records, or from Social Security Applications or Draft Registrations. These random records or record changes are accumulated and posted to the website every 6 months. Birth records accumulated in the 6 months ending 31 Mar 万家彩票官网网址 have been integrated into our Birth records and also posted here as a separate list. (Posted 31 Mar  万家彩票官网网址)

1925 Iowa State Census:  As you may know, the 1925 Iowa State Census is the Holy Grail of censuses because it contains not only the names of all the countyís citizens but also their parentís names, places of birth, and place of marriage. Although the census is accessible on line, there is presently no index and finding your relative is dependent on how well the enumerator spelled their name and how well the transcriber deciphered it for the transcription. And, if you want to find them on the actual census images, there is virtually no guidance to doing so. A project to provide the 1925 Madison County Census, fully indexed, on this website, has been initiated. As of 12 Dec 2019, the entire transcription has been posted although half of Webster Township and all of Winterset are still subject to proofreading. Based on proofreading completed to date (80% of the full census), it is unlikely that the remaining proofreading  will materially change the data. The index has been completed and can be accessed here.

Madison County Family Tree UpdateThe Madison County Family Tree is now hosted by RootsMagic Online and will be updated weekly.  It holds the same information as the previous Family Tree although the format is new and different.  Please take time to visit the Help screen to become familiar with the site.  The previous family tree was hosted by RootsWeb which was taken over by Ancestry a few years ago. Since that time, our weekly updates have not been shown. This new Family Tree hosted by RootsMagic contains 18+ months of updates, so you may find some helpful family information.

Over the past year, Eileen Reed has submitted many obituaries and family photos which are greatly appreciated. And finally, thanks go to Shirley Keating who works on current obituaries and Ida Morse who works on gravestone photos.
