Lost & Found Department

How many times have you seen photos and other obvious family memorabilia at flea markets and estate auctions?  Someone, somewhere would be overjoyed to have this material!  Don't you wish someone would contact you with the message that he just found a Thompson family Bible and he thinks it's YOUR Thompsons?

Thus we begin our Lost & Found Department.  Here we will post notices of lost and found items.  This is also where we will attempt to identify people and places in old photographs (also see Mystery Photo Gallery).

You are invited to submit items, but it MUST have a Pottawattamie County, Iowa, connection.  Email us what you have or what you're looking for. Please put "Pott. Lost & Found" in the subject.  Let us know if you have photos to submit and we'll discuss how to get them to us.
