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
As you know the rootsweb lists will be ended on March 1. I have started
a new list for Wolfe county on groups.io The new list address is
KYWolfe(a)groups.io if you want to join, go to that address and when
the page opens, scroll to the bottom and there is a box there where you
can enter your email address . Follow the directions. The only thing
about this new list is that the owner cannot subscribe or unsub the members.
I hope you all will join me on this new list. A lot of the lists have
switched to groups.io.
I am so sorry to see that Rootsweb is ending the lists. it is a big
blow to genealogy. I don't know if the websites will be kept
available. They said that the archives will be available but nothing
more will be added.
Have a great weekend,
Norma Listowner for KYWolfe(a)rootsweb.com
