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
Most, if not all, census 2000 forms have been delivered or mailed by now. I
received mine last week and have returned it. (Winn Parish finished today)
If you have not received your form, please call 1-800-471-9424. I suggest
waiting no later than 24 March as the deadline for returns is 1 April 2000.
If you have received your census form please fill it out and mail it. Don't
wait for the next round when the enumerators will begin calling and knocking
on doors to "help" you fill yours out.
And most important, if you received a long form, please don't write or call
me complaining (8>)). I personally wish everyone would have received the
long form. Just imagine 72 years from now when some genealogist begins
looking at this census and discovers the horrid little short forms that have
little to no information of value!

Hello, all lists:
I thought I would bring out the big guns and ask all of the LA lists that I
belong to if someone can help me knock down a 25 year old wall. I have been
looking for the parents of my James Bradley Sims who was born abt. 1850 - not
sure if it might have been MS/LA/TN/AR. I have been told there are the
following possibilities for my SIMS:
J. B. Sims - LA 1860-69 Census #318
J. B. Sims - LA 1870-79 Census #319
James B. Sims - 1830-39 WFT Vol 19 Tree 1417
James B. Sims - 1861-65 WFT Vol 35 Tree 1779
If anyone has any access to these, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks so
