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
Found the below while searching on Antrim Rootsweb list. Are their any living descendants of the below of the Boyd email lists? None of these guys were "poor", so what happened to the families. We need to find the LIVING Boyd's in Ireland to get DNA and family history matching completed. I wonder if these folks are still on the family property?

"Per genealogy library reference book, the following individuals owned one or more acres of land in Co. Antrim, Ireland, the latter part of the 1870s. Note, an unusual first or middle name may be the surname of a related family. Some people owned property in Co. Antrim but lived elsewhere. Many more Irish owned less than one acre, or none at all, and their names would not appear on this list. For your information, the land survey above was completed in 1876 and first published in a London book in that year." No given book name by author of email posting on ANTRIM Rootsweb list. I searched the site with "Boyd" + "Coleraine" and found the above. No clue what the source is from the author.

Does anyone connect to this Thomas/Margaret Boyd?
Hello Richard, I found you via Rootsweb.com and I looked at some at the
Boyd website. Very Nice! I am from Monroe County WV and there is a
cemetery there that is all but lost. I have decided to work on it as a
project, which is turning out to be a huge effort! There are Boyds
buried in this Cemetery (The Old Lebanon Cemetery). It dates back to
1803, which is 10 years older than the Old Rehobeth Cem.(on the
historical restistry). I am curious if you have studied the Boyds of
Monroe at all. The oldest known Boyd in Lebanon is a Thomas b. abt 1790
and was buried in 1878. His wife was a Margaret. This cemetery is of
great historical interest to the County's formation and I am trying to
piece the lives of those people together for possibly a small book. I
appreciate you reading my ramblings and look forward to hearing from
you. I will study your website further! Thanks

Copied from the Antrim list. Lost of BOYD's and a specific Australia link

Above is a link to the Braid - Mid-Antrim Museum. They now have a
searchable index of 28 of 42 graveyards in the Borough of Ballymena Co. Antrim.
Please note that I know from personal experience that there are
some errors in the transcriptions.
They are working on the digitization of the rest of the cemeteries.
I am slowly adding my Clough transcriptions and pictures to findagrave.com.
So eventually their transcription can be compared to the pictures and my
transcriptions. It is a slow process.
