Historical Resources

  • Fascinating letters describing homesteading years - although the letters mention Holyoke frequently, the Joslin homesteads were in Yuma County
  • There is a COGenWeb mailing list to aid in your genealogy research in Northeastern Colorado.

    The coyuma-l@rootsweb.com, list covers a six-county (Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick, Phillips, Washington and Yuma) area. As traffic builds, the initial area list will be divided into smaller areas.

    The mailing list provides an easy route to reach other people researching their roots in your area of interest. It does not replace the individual COGenWeb County query systems and cannot be used to post queries for the individual county coordinators.

    If you have resources on any of the six counties (cemetery indexes, newspaper obituaries, census data, biographies, family histories or county histories) that you would be willing to use to lookup information in for others, your participation is especially requested. To make the mailing list viable, we NEED lookup volunteers

    To sign up for the mailing list send an email message to COYUMA-L-REQUEST@rootsweb.com. In the body of the message type the singe word -- subscribe.

    If you would rather receive a "digest" version of the message traffic on the mailing list, use the address COYUMA-D-REQUEST@rootsweb.com. In the body of the message type the single word -- subscribe. If you chose the digest version, emails sent to the mailing list will be collected and forwarded to you periodically in a single package.
