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
Help! I’m assuming Steve is asleep, so perhaps some night owl or West Coaster can answer a question for me. I installed several sets of DeedMapper map sets. These were e-mailed to me, and my Mac unzipped them just fine, turning them into BMF files. I then copied those, along with the accompanying MBL files to my PC with DeedMapper, each in a separate county folder (for example, Albemarle folder contains the MBL file for Albemarle deeds and the BMF files for Albemarle maps). When I attempt to open the deed file Albemarle, I get a series of DeedMapper error messages saying “File C:\me…\DeedMapper\Albemarle\.GA2BDF02.BMF is not a map file.” I click OK and get another message saying the file will be skipped. I click OK again and it continues on until it has apparently gone through every BMF file in the Albemarle folder. If I just keep clicking OK, eventually the error messages stop and the deeds file opens with the maps overlaid just fine.
Does anyone know what I have done to generate these error messages? It’s probably something silly I have overlooked, but I’m so used to my Mac that I’ve almost forgotten how to use Windows and a PC (whew!). I’d really like to stop getting these error messages every time I open up a deeds file.
