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
Herbie,You have to look up Groups.io create a sign in account (it's free to join) then look for the list(s) in question and subscribe. Very much the same as you would do with rootsweb.If you are signed up with any lists that have already moved over to Groups.io some will send a link inviting you to switch. All the bestCherylSent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
I would like to add my thanks to Ian and wish him a very happy retirement.
I would also like to thank Harshawardhan for the invitation to join the
india-british-raj(a)groups.io group which I have taken up.
Best wishes to everyone,
Keith re your request for those two look ups- what pages are they on?

First, I want to express appreciation to those who have said thanks to me
in messages to the list and to my personal email address, however the
pleasure that each of us has achieved from communication with the list and
success in researching family history, has been achieved by yourselves, not
me. I have merely played the role of bureaucratic list administrator. The
real gratitude for this lists success belongs with Cathy Day who began the
Rootsweb list list in 1997, when the India Roots list came to an end.
This list is the third iteration of the original, having gone from India
Roots to Rootsweb and this list, the Ancestry version. I have no doubt
that it will emerge again, but it won't be by me. I am too tired and old
to continue and I look forward to retirement.
I encourage you to accept the invitation from Harshawardhan and join the
reborn India-British-Raj mailing list. Many of you are already subscribed
to his list but for those who may not know Harshawardhan, he is a gentleman
of both Indian and British interests, high education and culture. I
respect and have enjoyed his contribution to Indian studies.
The India List has been a real pleasure for me. I regret its loss.
Good Luck and success in your research.
Dear list.I did email Pat Scully at FIBIS enquiring as to whether they would set up a list on Groups.io this was in January but got no reply.Once again thank you Ian and thanks to all listers for sharing, for me it's been an ongoing book that you look forward to opening and don't want to end.All the best.Cheryl.Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

Hello Harshawardhan Nimkhedkar,
Just wanted to say thank you for setting up IBR on the groups platform and
for the invitation. I have sent in my request to subscribe. I didn't
previously know of the IBR on rootsweb, but am sure it will be most
enjoyable In its new form.
Many thanks and happy retirement to Ian,
Best wishes to all members,
