I have been adding information and linking my family in Cerro Gordo County, many of whom you manage. I have noticed that none of the edits I have sent through have been accepted yet and was wondering if you are receiving them. I tried sending the note below to your email but it bounced back. I am including the note below for Hannah Cahalan:
