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
Kathleen....Just a short THANK YOU. I've been off the airways since July and
have much to catch up on and thanking you is one of them. Your efforts in
keeping this list alive and well behaved(lol)...is tremendous. Thanks for keeping
us up on our 'roots rules'. This is a good list and I enjoy every post whether
it's for my line or someone elses. Againk, THANKS!

I am in need of the Index Page for Vol 12 of the Official Roster of the Ohio Soldiers in the Rebellion 1861-1865.
I would also like to know if anyone knows where a copy of this book is at that can be purchased.
Thanks for the help
Dear List Members,
If you are interested in knowing about other mailing list out there, one
of the very best inventories of genealogical mailing lists is John
Fullers Genealogy Resources on the Internet located at
If you ever need to unsubscribe from this list or any rootsweb list all
you need to do is visit Password Central located at
http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ Follow the
instructions and you will received an e-mail of all lists you belong to
and from it you can unsubscribe from the ones you want to. Always know
that I will be more than happy to help you if you are having problems
unsubscribing, you only need to ask. Please send this request to
KathleenBurnett(a)earthlink.net not to the entire list.
If you would like to visit the Archived messages of this list, go to
http://archiver.rootsweb.com/ and type in the name of the list you would
like to search and from there you can search by dates.
If you are having problem and I do not answer you right away, know that
I will. I like many of you work full time outside of my home. I am
fortunate that I can check my e-mail any time I wish, but know that
there are spaces of time I cannot. I always check my e-mail each and
every evening and will respond to message that need me then and there.
There are a few items I would like to suggest for the benefit of each of
1. When sending a posting to the list it would help if you would put
the subject of your posting in the subject line. Doing this also might
give you a better chance to attract the attention of someone who has the
information you are looking for or the attention of someone who is
searching for the information you are posting. Many members are on many
many lists and when they see a subject line that reads "My Ancestors"
they just delete it.
2. When posting a query regarding a surname it would help all of us if
you would put your surname in CAPS. This way the members can easily
pick out the surnames you are looking for. On the other hand when the
entire message is in CAPS we feel that we are being yelled at.
3. Please remember to delete the tags and un-needed words when you
re-send a message to the list with your answer. If you don't check
this, your responses can become quite large and may cause problems with
some of our member's servers. This member who might not be able to
receive your message because of its size, just might be your long lost
second cousin with all the answers you are looking for.
5. Remember to keep your Virus protection up to date and never open any
attached file unless you are 100% sure what it is and even then you are
taking a chance.
6. Now, the hardest thing is when one of our own, a fellow member
becomes upset about a posting from one from one of us. It is so hard
not to jump in and add our two cents. I want you to know how much I
appreciate it when you just let these posting go by and delete them.
Know that I am behind the scenes taking care of the problem. If you
ever have a concern that I might have missed a message that needs
addressed you are welcome to contact me during the day at
Kathleen.burnett(a)era.com or in the evenings at
7. If your list has the gateway open, meaning the messages posted on
the board also hit he list, know that every once in a while a SPAM
message that is caught by the Board filter slips through the gateway and
hits the list before it can be stopped. JUST DELETE IT. By responding
the the list regarding he offending message, you just continue it on,
and there is not one thing I can do about it at that point.
Please remember, so that this list is better for each of us, the posting
of virus warnings, test messages, chain letters, political
announcements, current events, items for sale, personal messages,
flames, etc., in other words Spam is NOT ALLOWED and will be grounds for
removal. Consideration for exceptions, contact me at
I want to thank each of you for your continued support of me and your
willingness to help make this list the success it is. It is your list
and is here for your benefit. If you have suggestions or comments you
would like in future reports, you only need to send them to me.
Alvin Crabtree m. Irene Bathalter in 1928 Powell County. Does anyone know
who she was or where she was from or what happened to her? Alvin was living
in Newport, KY on the 1930 Census with his father John P, and it seems he
might have been divorced, but is difficult to read.
Appreciate any help.
