---- NOTICE ---

This site is dependent upon transcribing efforts by a corps of volunteers. No one person can possibly "know it all" including the site manager. If you are using this site, please be aware we try to get data up within 10 days of submission, BUT often things change our priorities, like getting food, sleep and some time for our families..., SO if it takes a bit longer, be patient, it IS coming.

Volunteers are needed to transcribe data for this site. If you are interested in helping out please drop me a line: Karen Zach, County Coordinator.

PLEASE use the search engine, and compile the data on your family, be assured that there is a 99.99% possibility that every bit of data we have is UP on the website already, we try to keep caught up. IF your research in the resources available here fail to gain the information you are seeking, PLEASE do not ask us to look for it on the site. If you can't find it here, Please post a QUERY to The Mail List. You can join the Mail List by clicking this link, and just sending the email that pops up.Conversely, you may also use the Ancestry.com Message board for this county, That also gets sent to the list automatically. The PURPOSE of the list is two-fold, spread data, and connect people.

Thanks! to Ed Moyer, who, for ten years maintained the Fountain County site, for this Project. It is with great thanks that we have been honored by his trust in taking it over, and we will still be working closely with Ed.

Thanks Ed. We will take good care of it.

Thanks also to Jeff Scism who has been amazing with his knowledge of html and computer info - greatly appreciated, Jeff.
