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
I just thought I'd write today as this list, as well as all Rootsweb
lists, closes tomorrow and due to time zones etc......
This list has assisted so many people over the years, and I, as one of
the list admin team, would like to thank all our posters, regular or
otherwise for all their input over the years.
There is no doubt it will be missed but I hope, and it is showing all
the signs, that the new Google list devongenealogy will fill the gap.
Don't forget as well that Devon Family History Society, which is not
affected by this, and continues to index records and to support people
researching their family history in Devon WWW.DEVONFHS.ORG.UK
So THANK YOU and GOODBYE Rootsweb mailing lists.
List Admin Team
