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
Just before Christmas last year I saved a message from you about our ancestors Christmas recipes. I'm getting the 'Can't find' message and failed in a Google search also. I also tried the shortening trick. The address I have is:
Has this changed? Gone?
Thanks for any help.

It is my pleasure to announce that the complete 1864 Ireland Birth Index

busy lives to help others by transcribing pages: Rosemary Cairns, Bill
Roberge, Jan MacMillan, Joy Burgos, Bob McConihe, Ronnie Lorentz, Ellen
Ahrens, Eileen Redman, Diane Culhane, Kathy Snowberger, Jim Cox, Jim

Margaret Minoughan, Eileen Sullivan, James Sullivan, MaryPat Carey,
Candi Zizek, Maggie Lambert, Mary Devlin, Kelly Anne Binari, Judie
Mason, Mary Mizzi, Dan Doherty, Nora Fitzgerald and David Collins.
The volunteers came from all over the world, many from Australia and
Canada, some from England, one from Croatia and many from the USA. It
was great talking to all of you.
Other new updates on the site include the Surname Registries and
DataBank plus new Special Projects.
Wanted: We need coordinators for the following counties: Carlow,
Longford, Laois, Meath, Westmeath and Waterford. If you have knowledge
of how to make webpages plus an interest in the county, contact me off

Just got this update:
New features added to Irish Genealogical Online Record Search System
In our continued effort to improve our Online Record Search the IFHF is please
to announce the addition of some important new features:
- The facility to narrow the search by entering the first name and surname of
the father of the birth/baptismal record that you are searching for, which will
reduce the number of records returned in any search.
- When on the individual county sites, you also have the ability to narrow your
search by Parish. The list of available Parishes now also shows the denomination
of the Parish. For a list of the Denominations please see the FAQ.
- The removal of many duplicate records from the system that were caused by
human error in transcribing the records, by records being recorded in more than
one register or by the integration of computer systems.
- All records are now clearly marked to indicate whether they are church or
- All the counties' birth, baptismal death and marriage records online,
including those of Co. Meath, as well as all available census records, are now
available on the all-Ireland Central Search http://ifhf.brsgenealogy.com.
- Quicker method of unsubscribing from Email updates (see note below).
We are working to make more records available and to add further counties to the
online service. When this come available we will notify you by email if you are
on the distribution lists. See note below if you do not wish to receive any
further email updates.
