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
It's extremely pleasing to announce that following the FreeBMD database update on 21 February 2014 we passed a significant milestone by having a total of over *** 300 million records *** ( 300,035,559 to be precise) on FreeBMD.
This is due to the outstanding efforts over the years from almost 12,000 transcribers supported by their Syndicate Coordinators.
Our transcribers are currently working on years up to and including 1971.
Many thanks to all who have contributed to our Project.
FreeBMD Coordinator of Syndicates
