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
Sorry to start another thread of messages so close to a Surname Shout Out
but with the lists being down the first part of the year it threw my
scheduling off. Hope you don't mind...
With this being the Memorial Day Weekend, I thought it would it be
interesting to post one ancestor we have in our family trees who served in
one of the many wars and battles we fought in US History. Obviously it has
to be an ancestor from this county. :)
Give a brief biography of that person including the unit and war he or she
was in, a POW, injuries, plus the usual genealogical stuff.
Thanks in advance and have a safe weekend!

Surname smith, Jack Smith b.1936 Milford or Spirit Lake. parents George J Smith & Mabel L Reed Smith. Marriage disolved 1939. Geoge managed at gas station during marriage.
Mabel remarried, relocated Jack maybe took new surname.
Also looking for Robert Smith b.1875 Illinois -moved to Iowa 1884 parents both died young Luusia Kemp Smith and Joseph B Smith. Robert reared by g grandparents Geo and Anne Smith
of Pocahontas co. Robert 1st in family to attend college. Resided Ayreshire/Laurens area til 1940s death.
Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to
"celebrate" our return I'm initialing a first ever Surname Shout Out.
A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor
we're totally stumped on.
