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
Would some kind soul be able to search for an obit for Helen Jacobsen who
died 2 Apr 1998 in the town of Santa Cruz? Or if anyone has a CADI index
that includes 1998, would appreciate a lookup there.
