There are many other sources to search, but as I said you need a better idea of who you are looking for.

My biological grandmother was Bernice June Kain, nee Catlin.  she married William Emmett Kain, who was born in 1915 in Algona, but lived in Des Moines in at least the 1940's.  He worked for the Des Moines register.  Bernice died in 1946 and he remarried and had 3 children.  Don't have anymore information other than that.  Would like to talk to any of those children about their father, particularly when he met and knew Bernice.
