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
For those that have been trying to browse the RootsWeb DEED-MAPPER-USERS-L
Archives, they are now available again. To use them, go to
<http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/index/DEED-MAPPER-USERS> and select the
month and year desired.
Hope this helps -
DEED-MAPPERS-USERS List Administrator
Seasons Greeting to everyone -
I just wanted to announce that I am the new administrator for the
DEED-MAPPER-USERS list. I don't know if I can fill Marilyn's shoes, but
I'll try. I hope she continues to drop in here from time to time as we'll
all miss her if she doesn't. She did a great job and we all owe her a
great big round of applause. Thanks, Marilyn.
I don't plan any changes here, the list was doing real fine the way Marilyn
ran it and I hope to do it the same way. So anyone with questions, tips or
any comments about Deed Mapper are encouraged to post them here. This is
the big reason for the list -- to help each other.
Marilyn Symonds, the creator and guiding light of the DMU mail list has
to step down as list administrator for personal reasons. We're all grateful
for the tremendous contribution she has made. It has allowed us to get
together to share our experiences with those pesky deeds!
There's now both a need and an opportunity for someone in the user community
to become list admin. No experience is necessary, so if you think you might
interested, please reply separately to deeds(a)ultranet.com. Let's keep this
list going strong!
Welcome to the DEED-MAPPER-USERS mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
3. Proofread and be sure you want your post public. All posts go in the archives!
