Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I tried posting this enquiry at the beginning of the week however vit has
not appeared so I am attempting to repost it.
Apologies for the repartition.
I understand that in order to "cleanse the stain of convictism" many records
were destroyed in the past.
Can anyone advise whether there is a definitive list of these records and
where it may be viewed?
I hope that if this did take place that a record was kept and feel that if
this was indeed the case that it may save a lot of wasted searching.

From your screen-grabs, EVERYTHING appears to be in PDF format, which
can be read by Acrobat Reader.
There appears to be 9 of the "R" documents marked "R1, R2, R3 etc ... up
My presumption is that EACH "reel" is equivalent to a single old "BOOK"
or "VOLUME". Each reel maybe equal to the length of one microfilm???
Presumably each page in the 'original old book' was allocated a number.
Maybe each individual item or set of items is numbered.
You will need to study the index CAREFULLY so to work out what each reel
/ volume contains
It does state on the archives site that all book's documents/items are
arranged CHRONOLOGICALLY, suggesting that the original was a hard -bound
book, not loose leaf.
Presumably, therefore, the original efficient scribe made up an index
AFTER the book was complete, or by a later sribe.
TO ACCESS EACH REEL simply.
a) Right click the mouse while hovering over "REEL 1" and choose "open
with Microsoft Word"
b) The box that appears will say that it will convert it to an editable
c) You are now have a usable document where you can scroll to the
relevant part, edit, cut out sections, or copy & paste as per a normal
d) If you copy the relevant section into a new word document, you can
print only that needed relevant section.
e) Do the same for R2, R3 etc, etc.
f) MS Word allows you to use its command "save as" for many different
Where your DVD is likely to be handled by many clients, either install
it on your FHS computer(s) or make an extra copy for general use and put
the original away for a rainy day!

I wondered if anyone recalls how to access the records this DVD contains ??. Was published by State Records c 2008. No problem accessing the extensive indexes . Is absolutely no how you access the actual records that are on this DVD.. Pretty sure someone hopefully on this list did a workaround and how to print ???. Thought I'd kept copy ??
