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
As Thanksgiving nears, it's a special time to put some thought into
things for which we are thankful. One of the things I appreciate is
IAGenWeb and the fact that we offer a web resource tool for family
researchers that is high quality and free. In order to make those
resources available, we count on volunteers to assist.
IAGenWeb has countless volunteers and we are grateful for all they do.
If you are interested in joining our team as a volunteer, there are
numerous ways you can contribute. One way is to volunteer to
transcribe records or you could offer to do look ups. Another way is to
become a county coordinator for one of our orphan counties. Right now,
we have 13 counties that are in need of a coordinator. They are:
JONES, JACKSON, SAC, IDA, POWESHIEK, SCOTT, CARROLL, GREENE, LYON,
ADAMS, POTTAWATTAMIE, EMMET, and MAHASKA.
