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 updated the Yorkshire Surnames list again today. This update was brought about by problems with the old Freeserve addresses bouncing. I have removed all the entries with freeserve addresses (including variants such as fsnet) that I know bounce, totalling some 347 addresses and over 1,000 surname entries.
All the Freeserve addresses will go obsolete by the end of May, and any remaining freeserve addresses in the surnames list will have their entries removed at that point.
So, if you have a freeserve address, you need to:
1. Find yourself a new email server (such as gmail)
2. Let me know what your new email address is so that it can be changed in the list.
The names added on this updatge are given below:
BRAVENER, BROADHEAD, BUTLER
If you would like to add your Surnames to the list, please use the form at:
In the village of Blunham in Bedfordshire U.K.

Thanks for this, Colin: I've posted some of my interests.
