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
Great to have them online.
Carol - did you mean image in the singular? Did you try paging forward,
there is nearly always 2 docs relating to the issue of a licence.
I am though, seeing quite a few errors in the index info, especially in
marriage place - e.g East Feignmouth; Slokeintailhead; one marriage
supposedly in Devonshire in USA(!); a marriage licence for a marriage at
Christ Church, Plymouth (and which was there - the PR entry is on FMP)
is recorded as being at Christ Church, Aughton, Lancashire!
I can't see a way of reporting errors; anyone know how this should be
done with FS?

The period is from 1660-1912 and it's from the Diocese of Exeter. The collection contains marriage bonds and allegations. One thing to note is that you can't download any of the records due to contract restrictions. I've only searched for one marriage so far, but the image was very clear.

I have come across the abbreviation of INST 331 on the 1939 register and wondered what this and some other abbreviations mean. It occurred as an alteration to an individual at a street address in Lancs and from the colour of the ink , when she changed her name though no marriage can be found.
This one is not an enumeration district as “H” is Cumberland and Westmorland and “J” is Yorkshire with no county in between as Furness and Lancs all begin with N – see https://www.findmypast.co.uk/articles/1939-register-enumeration-districts .
As this register was used by the NHS and alterations made up until 1992, there must be someone contributing to our mail lists who used to be in NHS admin and could enlighten us. I am not sure how much more information these abbreviations will give but well worth investigating .
