Our Chapter at Work

The Buena Vista Chapter abstracted all the names in the wills 1880-1900 in Buena Vista County. These names were then alphabetized and cross-referenced in three volumes titled "Abstracts of Wills of Buena Vista County, Iowa 1880-1900." This was done because the 1890 census was destroyed in a fire in Washington, D.C. and the names were lost. These volumes were submitted to the Buena Vista Genealogical Library, the Iowa Genealogical Society Library, the Iowa Historical Society Library and the National Daughters of the America Revolution Library.

Buena Vista Chapter NSDAR worked to landscape the area around the Pioneer Rock.  The rock was dedicated on October 11, 1926.

This chapter project received national recognition as the Third Place winner of the Conservation Chapter Contest and was awarded Second Place in the North Central Division Chapter Contest for 2015.
