Please join IGS for a Celebration of Hazel Demirjean September 15th 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Iowa Genealogical Society Library. Help us give Hazel a big thank you for all her years of service!
Hazel was a charter member of the Iowa Genealogical Society when it was founded in 1965. When the Hawkeye Heritage began publication in 1966, Hazel was one of the members who helped design the first logo used through the first fourteen years. Hazel and Barbara Snedden printed the first issue in the Snedden’s basement on a mimeograph machine.
Hazel served as IGS Vice President in 1966 & 1967, and as President in 1968 & 1969. In 1969, Hazel organized volunteers for indexing of the 1850 census of Iowa by counties. In 1982 Hazel became a member-at-large on the IGS board. Throughout the years Hazel has worked as IGS ambassador, helped organize many trips to Salt Lake City for society members, and worked as cataloger for IGS.
“The Iowa Genealogical Society library is very special to me, having watched it grow from the very beginning.” – Hazel Demirjean, Library Board Meeting, August, 1984.
Thank you, Hazel, for your many years of dedication to IGS. You will be missed!

Life in the 1920s: the New Woman
They painted their lips scarlet, bobbed their hair, smoked in public and exposed their legs. Called Flappers and the Lost Generation the behavior of young women in the 1920s scandalized their mothers. In quieter ways, they voted, gained degrees, worked jobs outside of the home and were the original “super moms.”
