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
You may have already seen Rod Neep's message reporting the meeting we
all had with Rootsweb/Ancestry yesterday.
The news is good good and nothing but good. RootsWeb will stay as an
entity (the URL for FreeBMD will not change).
RootsWeb/Ancestry will continue to host FreeBMD and FreeREG continuing
the agreement and giving free access. They will also be actively helping
with resources such as programming. Lastly, they are going to buy some
of the GRO indexes on film and scan it for FreeBMD.
