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
To All Whom It May Concern:
Please be informed that you can now search part of
The DESCRIPTIVE & HISTORICAL REGISTER
of Enlisted Soldiers in the U.S. Army,.... for free at:
The Buffalo Barracks Historical Web Site
[ http://www.buffalonet.org/army ]
This is an outstanding web site which includes the records
of over 1,650 soldiers from all States and Territories
who either served at, enlisted at, reenlisted at, or were discharged at
the short lived Buffalo Barracks federal military post,
between 1835 and 1846. Many of the men listed fought in the
Florida Indian Wars, the War with Mexico, and then the Civil War.
Perhaps you have an ancestor who was at the Buffalo Barracks?
Discover how tall he was; the color of his hair and eyes; his age;
where he was born; and even the complexion of his skin.....and more!
Hi Everyone, It has been a while since I have written so I thought I would
write and let you know of some resent development's
.The first thing is that I now have an assistant. Michael Peterson has
volunteered to do lookups for us.
He is from the Bear Lake area and will be very instrumental in coordinating
with local citizens. We would like to
welcome him aboard and say Thank You Michael.
Second, The 1870 census for Idaho has been completely transcribed. All
except Ada are available at http://www.usgenweb.org/census/states/idaho.htm
Ada County will be uploaded soon.
Third, This one is copied and pasted from the web page for those who dont
have Internet access,
If you do have internet here is the URL.
A quote from the above URL
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following
statement regarding current speculation about an Internet genealogy service
sponsored by the Church:
Sometime in March or April 1999, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints will conduct a brief beta test of a new genealogical service for the
Internet. The Church believes this service will greatly enhance the way
people trace their family history. A formal announcement and launch is
expected in the spring or summer of 1999. Details will not be available
The Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints is an international leader in genealogical research, with the world's
largest collection of family history records made available to the public
through a system of 3,200 Family History Centers located around the world."
Wow! That will be neat! Lets be sure and use it while it is on there.
http://www.familysearch.org/ is the official site URL. It is currently not
up and working but when it is I will let you know.
Thanks for all of your support in this project. It has been allot of fun.
