Tuesday's Tip - Sioux County Newspapers

I recently was forwarded a link to this site that is awesome if you are researching people in Sioux County, Iowa. Sioux Center has a pretty big Dutch community and I have a lot of relatives on the Koops side of my family that are from there and still live in the area. Just with a quick search I found a number of obituaries that I hadn't seen before. The only caveat is that it seems to me that the older newspapers don't have the greatest scans. They are readable, but not necessarily something that you would grab the image of and post. But they are great for information and transcribing!
