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 for the trouble, but some kook sabotaged my e-mail subscriptions to
the Rootsweb.com mailing lists. I can still receive postings to my
USER683614(a)AOL.COM box, or here. I also have about a dozen screen names with
two other Internet providers, so if those of you who I am helping will e-mail
me privately, I'll give them to you. I hope this problem will resolve itself.

Hello to the Great State of Iowa,
I am searching for any information anyone can provide me with regard to
the surname TARRANT and FEDEREN.
Both families lived in various parts of the state, but spent quite a bit
of time in the Minneapolis area. I am searching for PHILIP FEDEREN (1883) and
his wife EDITH FEDEREN (1884) and their two children FABIOLA TARRANT (1897)
and CECILE TARRANT (1893). They were last known to be in the Twin Cities area
in 1944, but their descendants could be anywhere by now.
They were relatives of GEORGE A. SHANNON AND ISABELLA (McDonald) SHANNON
of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and their son ROBERT D. SHANNON, who was last
known around 1942-44 to be living in Spencer, Iowa. Robert's wife was named
JESSE and his children were ANNABELLE and GEORGE, also of Chippewa Falls, WI.
Any information regarding these families or their descendants would be
Laguna Hills, CA USA
