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
Rootsweb tries--and is usually successful--to block spam from reaching the
mailing lists. As the list owner, I receive a message every time spam is
blocked and it's amazing at how many spam messages are sent. Most of the
messages are pornographic in nature. Before the block was put on, spammers
managed to knock out the server, causing inconvenience and damage to the
computers which was costly both in time and money. The recent recipe spam
offered a link to an anti-spam bill, however, the last segment on the url
is bad. How convenient that our spammer sent the url incorrectly. If you
remove the last segment of the url, s771index.html, you will receive the
A statement from Senator Frank Murkowski
If you have been directed to this page, you have probably received spam
from an Internet marketer. I was the author of anti-spam legislation in the
105th Congress since I believe that spam is a burden upon citizens who use
the Internet. Although my bill passed the Senate, the House of
Representatives took a different view of the issue by merely recommending
self-regulation. Ultimately no legislation was adopted into law. I will
shortly be re-introducing similar anti-spam legislation in the 106th
If the spam you received contains illegal and/or offensive material, I
encourage you to forward the spam to the Federal Trade Commission at
uce(a)ftc.gov. The FTC is beginning to take legal action against these
abusers of the Internet and is seeking examples of spam to initiate its
investigations and prosecutions.
Spam is a burden that needs to end. I look forward to seeing the day that

Does Clayton County have a Liberty Township? I have a copy of a portion of
census for Liberty Township (Post Office of Pin Oak), which I believed to be
in Clayton County; however I see no reference to Liberty Township in the
Clayton County Web pages. If it is not in Clayton county, how would I go
about finding out which county it is in??

Welcome to the IACLAYTO mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.

2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
