February - June 2019
In December my husband fell and lost control from the waist down. After emergency back surgery (his 4th), he was in the hospital for five months, the last 4 in another city. During that time, we decided that we had to give up our home of 42 years and move closer to our daughter. God has a plan and we were blessed to sell our home in less than two weeks and found a new place. We closed on both houses at the end of May and our now in our new home. During that same period the INGenWeb host began deleting files when new information was posted. Our leadership committee finally found a new home for INGenWeb and we are once again able to update our sites without fear of losing other information. Our web address remains the same and we are excited to work with our new host.

May 2018
Since Rootsweb@Ancestry.com has been down for a long period of time and the previous county coordinator has decided to retire, Jim Cox and Margie Pearce took over the site in May. Transferring the Wells County cemetery listings that had been posted on the Adams INGenWeb site was the first order of business once the new site had been created. Then came the "About" page. Adding the Bible records that were recovered from various sources came next. And we continue to add to the cemetery listings. We have added a listing for Hosier Cemetery with 1 obit and 5 headstone photos and are trying to finish up Hoverstock Cemetery. A - R listing is complete with 101 obits and 153 photographs. Each month the this page will tell what has been added that may help a family researcher.
