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
Suggestions by transcribers to improve FreeBMD
This list is for general FreeBMD discussion.
It is normally for experienced transcribers who are fully conversant with FreeBMD.
New volunteers can participate in or initiate a discussion but BEFORE doing so it is strongly advised they check out the DISCUSS mailing archives to see if the same issue has been previously discussed. It is also recommended new volunteers lurk for a while to get the feel for the sort of topics discussed. This will overcome the reinventing the wheel syndrome.
The Discuss list is not for new volunteers or transcribers looking for help, the Admin list is for this purpose.
The Discuss list allows subscribers to offer opinion as to what we should be doing. Ideas discussed on this list will form a major input to the FreeBMD decision making process. Discussions reflecting practice within a particular syndicate are not allowed, unless this is in support of changing the official policy or working of FreeBMD.
