I've taken a closer look, and done some mapping, I'd be asking you to do a 260 mile round trip, just to get me a few photos. If it was half the distance, I'd say go for it, and Thank You.

Just a tad too far I think, as your going to visit family. I've sent a couple of mails off to the Iowa Family history society, and will see if I can get a local researcher to make the trip for me. I spend time here in the UK in records offices looking up for US based folks, so I may strike lucky with a kind soul who lives local. My first glance at the map didn't focus my eyes on the scale, and what looked like a short trip is longer than I first thought.
Thanks very much for the offer, but if between now and then I have no joy with the history society, I may still come back to you.
