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
Unfortunately the following message has been delayed due to Rootsweb server being out of action for about two weeks until a couple of days ago.
The Trustees and I thank those who have already taken the time to comment on the agreement. As a result of feedback already received, we are considering making a number of changes. The Trustees will be meeting in mid-March to discuss a revised agreement and process. We will not be implementing this 'as is', but having a second phase of consultation, in which we hope to reach more past and present transcribers and others who may have copyright in FreeBMD and our other projects. We encourage everyone to look at the current version (http://www.freeukgenealogy.org.uk/about/transcriber-agreement-consultation/), and provide their feedback by Sunday 13th March, so that we can make all the changes needed.
