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
Good Morning, Mills Researchers,
As you may have already heard, there are going to be some changes in how we
can communicate with each other. Below is a message from Rootsweb advising
everyone that effective March 2nd, they will be discontinuing their Mailing
Lists. These mailing lists have been a convenient way to communicate, with
all of you, about Mills County genealogy news and updates to our website.
However, luckily, for us, IAGenWeb technicians already have message boards,
in place, that we will be able to use moving forward. If you would like to
continue to receive updates to our Mills county website, or if you would
like to post questions and answers to other researchers working in Mills
County, I would like to invite you to “subscribe” to the IAGenWeb Query
[image: image.png]. After you have subscribed, you will receive an email
when anyone posts a note on this board.
If you have any questions, or need help, subscribing to the IAGenWeb query
board, please let me know. I would be glad to help you.

Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the
genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry
registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and
contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team*
I would also like to let you know there is a IAGenWeb Facebook page for
anyone interested in Iowa Genealogy. You can access that here;
Any questions, please let me know. Take care..

As we have all heard today Rootsweb is ending their mail lists as of March 2nd. I would like to invite all who are subscribed to the Iowa county Rootsweb mail lists to remember you can subscribe to the IAGenWeb Query Boards as well as the Bio, documents and obituary boards. A list of all county message boards (free to use) can be found here http://iagenweb.org/state/countygrid.htm
To subscribe to the query boards for the counties you are listed in follow these simple steps:
1) Click on the board/s you are interested in. It will open in a new page.
2) Click on the link "SUBSCRIBE" when that page opens, enter your email address and click 'ADD ADDRESS TO LIST" and then click "Send Address".
YOU ARE FINISHED. You will now receive all queries posted to that Query Board and any other boards you subscribe to.
I hope you will join us on our IAGenWeb boards!
