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
Looking for any info on a Charles R. WRIGHT who was born in IN or MI in April 1860. He lived in Brooklyn, IA and married Louwillie Shiflett in 1890. He died in Jan 1902 and is buried at Barnes City. He had sons Earl Cleveland, Frank and Harry.
His parents are listed as Eli WRIGHT and Eliza Kimins, both born in IA.
Any information appreciated.
You were right about problems with the site. I sent an email off on Sunday
and heard back from the Land Office today. Hackers had gotten into the site,
but the site is fixed and back on-line as of today.
We have noticed that the link we have to "the Federal land
title records for the Eastern Public Land States, issued
between 1820 and 1908" has a horrible picture and the
statement "Owned by PoisonBox" instead of the land records.
....Having been off-line for a couple of months, I am
wondering if this has been noticed and perhaps there is a
new/different URL for the land record page..... one I haven't
heard of as I've been *gone* ....

Want to let DAGUE researchers know that we have established a DAGUE
Rootsweb list. The name of the list reflects our surname in Germany --
DEEG. Other spellings have been DEG and DAGE/DAG (in America), DEEGEN
(in Germany) and other variations of the spelling of our surname.
If you are a DAGUE/related families researcher, we are happy to invite
you to join us on the DEEG list. To subscribe, send an e-mail to
DEEG-L-request(a)rootsweb.com Leave it blank, except for typing
"subscribe" (without the parentheses) in the body of the message. We are
looking forward to meeting you and finding our family connections.

7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
