Welcome to this website for genealogists and historians of the small towns in southeast Jones County in beautiful eastern Iowa. Genealogical aids, information, and photos are offered.

Several cluster emigrations occurred in the 19th and early 20th centuries, with the new arrivals coming to Jones County.  Many Czechs came from south of Trebon (South Bohemia, Czech Republic), and from south of Vysoke Myto (northeast Bohemia, Czech Rep.).  Many Germans came from Hattstedt and nearby villages in North Frisia, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.  That’s what we’re about…… enjoy!

This website is dedicated to all the immigrants who by their hard work and perserverance provided a better life for their descendants.
