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
In the excitement of the moment, we forgot to formally announce
our two bits of very-good-news.
We now have a new machine - a new server. For those interested
in the technical specification, RootsWeb have provided a dual
Pentium III/500 with 1 GB RAM and 8x18 GB of RAID hard disk, as
well as access to 45 Mb/s of bandwidth. Thankyou Rootsweb! This
should remove the overload problem for FreeBMD and give plenty of
room for expansion.
Our other piece of news is that, as of the first of February, we have
over one million entries in the database!
Thank you everyone who has submitted their entries and
transcribed for FreeBMD.
