We are a small group of genealogical enthusiasts who concentrate on researching the Dubuque County, Iowa area. We are not associated with any local chapter or society. We identify local area records that may be of interest to the family researcher; abstract them (or transcribe them verbatim when possible) and make them available for publication. Many times the records are not well known and are not easily accessible to researchers.

On this site you will find many sources of information including a list of all known cemeteries in the county with stone readings, all the known research efforts into reading the cemeteries and transcriptions of various Dubuque County area relevant historical documents.
