20060916 Kiron Kountry Data Base -- 1600 to 1910
This is a collection of data regarding individuals
born after 1600 and before 1910. References to any children that
may still be alive are noted with "private" and/or
with date and place informaton removed. Some of the facts presented
are birth, marriage, death, census, living location, and occupation.
The number of individuals in the Kiron Kountry
data base has grown to over 65,000 entries. Several family tree
branches going back to Schleswig/Holstein and other parts of
Europe have been added. Also, data on individuals moving from
eastern states into the Deloit and Milford township area has
been included. We have had lots of cooperation on documenting
the Swedes of early Charter Oak. A special overseas request resulted
in identifying a number of decedents in the old cemetery south
of Wall Lake. Emailed requests for information are received nearly
every day giving evidence to an extensive audience interested
in documenting their Iowa roots.
Some entries in this database are well documented
with vital record data and with family connections. Others are
known only by name and may represent a duplicate of another entry.
We try to avoid merging names and attaching new data to old names
when the connections are not well established. Not all names
appear on this website. Several filters were applied to the data
base to eliminate entries for living persons born after 1910
and to privatize data for individuals where age was indeterminate
but the possibility of post 1910 existed. All records should
be treated as secondary data and be subjected to proof. Accuracy
is a goal but not always achievable. Corrections are appreciated
and the professional courtesy of such notice is expected.
The scope of the source of name data has expanded
both geographically and chronologically. Most of the 1600 and
older family tree connection data has been provided by dedicated
individuals. Some of this data may appear in fuller detail on
other websites identified using any of the large search engine
sites. In several cases, family historians have provided much
needed data to resolve ambiguity and extend family trees. Data
from the Emigranten CD, PLF CD's, Emibas CD, Arkion DB, and other
similar internet databases have been incorporated in this revision
to improve date and place accuracy for some of the records. This
research continues to go on.
