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
I had the privilege of knowing Thelma Pierson Swanson, from Ottumwa. In her lifetime, she had compiled her own family's biography, from two lines. They are interesting as she lived her entire life in Ottumwa, and I typed her handwritten notes. Would you like to have a copy? I would like to donate a copy to the historical society, the genealogical society and the library. Can you give me some direction in contacting the appropriate individuals?
