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
I have several obits and newspaper articles etc., to share that were saved by
my grandparents (John & Martha DANKERT) in the New Sharon/Oskaloosa area,
Mahaska and Poweshiek Counties, not all dated, but probably from 1895 on. Please
