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 List Members,
If you were effected by the Comcast buy out, then you need to read this,
if not delete it.
Just this evening, I have receive over 100 requests for me to change
e-mail address to a Comcast address. Many of these requests mention
multiple lists of which the sender needs their e-mail address
changed. It will take me a good week or so to get through them all.
My suggestion is;
If you still have the ability to unsubscribe go to PASSWORD Central at
http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ type in your old e-mail address,
and follow the directions. You will receive an e-mail from which you
If you can't do this, then you will just need to re-subscribe with your
new address and let the old one bounce off.
To re-subscribe this go to John Fuller's mailing list site
http://www.rootsweb.com/~jfuller/gen_mail.html or remember you can
subscribe and or unsubscribe by sending only the word UNSUBSCRIBE or
SUBSCRIBE to XXXXXX-L-REQUEST(a)ROOTSWEB.COM or
XXXXXX-D-REQUEST(a)ROOTSWEB.COM if you are on the Digest List.
Naturally change the XXXXXX to the name of the list.
If all else fails, contact me, but be understanding if it takes me a
while to get to you.
Dear List Members,
It is that time of year when some of you will be leaving on Vacations.
You might want to consider unsubscribing from the list while you are
gone and then resubscribing when you return.
The easiest way to do this is by using Password Central.
http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ Follow the instructions and you
will receive a e-mail list of all Rootsweb Mailing Lists you belong to.
You can unsubscribe using this e-mail. Save it and you then have a list
of mailing lists you want to re-subscribe to.
When you return, you can check the Archives for this list at
http://archiver.rootsweb.com/ Just type in the name of the list and you
can check the messages for the dates you were gone.
The following was shared with me and I think it is one of the best Maps
I have seen showing the growth and history of the United States.
I appreciate each of you and know that it is because of you our list is
the success it is.
