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
When I tried to send this message a few minutes ago it bounced - bad email address. I'm trying again, but I answer my own question, more or less.
You can switch from Plat View to Deed Entry Form by clicking on the Edit Deed icon to the left of the bold T on the tool bar line.
Years ago I asked how to switch from Text View to Deed Entry Form. The answer was very simple, but I forgot how to do it and I haven't been able to find it in the archives so I'll ask again.
I have a deed in Text View. I want to switch to the Deed Entry Form to add some additional information. How do I switch?
Thanks. Jim Barrett - Timpson, TX
It has been awhile since I have worked with DM. Is there a way to
add comments to a Pt line that will not print/display? This is
usually my own comments expanding on what would normally be the Pt
line text from the deed such as describing the Pt is relation to a
modern description of the point.

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.

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.
