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
Dear GEN-OBIT subscribers:
I recently tried sending an email to another one of my Rootsweb email lists and it seemed to have worked, so I will try to send another issue of the GEN-OBIT listings. If you missed issues v21no045 and v21no046, they are in the archives, so you can search them athttp://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/index/GEN-OBIT
I am sorry that this has been such a long process, but I have had no control other than bugging Rootsweb and Ancestry. The database indexes are still not being indexed. But I am trying to figure out how to write my own database search tool, just in case.
Final moderator for Obituary Daily Times
This is the email list of the Obituary Daily Times. It is a moderated email list. If you are searching for descendants of a particular family group, this is the exchange group you want. It's easy (and quite addictive!) to do an index of your local paper, and you then have access to newspaper obituaries from across the world. If you become a contributor, you can request a copy of the listed obituary. It's like receiving numerous newspapers a day to shuffle through the obituaries. You can also become a subscriber without contributing, but you don't get the frills. If you want to become a contributor, please visit our website page about being a volunteer: http://sites.rootsweb.com/~obituary/volunteer.html.
