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
Guess I should have mentioned these things before, but please make sure
your replies are being sent to the list, and could we also change the
subject line to maybe include either the names you are researching, or the
name of your brickwall?
Sorry to be a bother,
Hope you're all having a great summer!
Just thought that, since things are running kind of slow right now, how
about we all send in queries on our brickwalls, as in time, area, name, and
any other info you think would be helpful, and maybe list the other surnames
you are researching. Who knows, you may find someone not on vacation, who
may actually have the information you're looking for! :-)
Surnames I am researching; Achor, Worz, Woodward, Wilson, Boothe, Lakey,
Morris, Stodghill, Robinson/Roberson, Shatwell, Essex, and Martin. In the
following areas; Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, New York, New Jersey and Ohio.
Looking for info on above, doing my husbands family tree
and she was my husbands Grandmother from Mocksville
NC and was married for many years to a Laddie(Lee)
Harkey. I know of at least 1 brother Evan Lakey, don't know
if theirs anymore or not. "Minnie" is buried in Maryland
and died around Jan 1, 1963
List mom for the ACHOR, ARKANSAS, ESSEX, LAKEY, SHATSWELL, VIOLIN-MAKERS,
and WORZ mailing lists

Subject: [HS] Support Family History Month- Letter & Resolution
> For those who are interested..... :)
> SENATOR'S LETTER AND RESOLUTION TO SUPPORT FAMILY HISTORY MONTH
> Below is the text from Senator Hatch's letter that was sent to all of
> the other United States Senators requesting their support for his
> Family History Resolution to declare October Family History Month
> every year. Below that is the text of the resolution itself:
> United States Senate
> Washington, DC 20510-4402
> 10 July 2001
> Dear Colleague:
> It is with great enthusiasm that I write to ask you to co-sponsor my
> resolution that will dedicate the Month of October of each year as
> "Family History Month."
> Within the last month some 14,167,329 people researched their family
> history and 24 million people have used the Web and e-mail to locate
> or hunt for family or friends with whom they had lost touch.
> Researching ancestry is a very important component to self-identity.
> It can lead to long-sought-after family reunions or life saving
> stories like that of Nancy Andjelich Margraff. Nancy's story, found
> in the book, "In Search of Our Ancestors," by Megan Smolenyak, helps
> to illustrate the need for public attention to the important subject
> of family history. Nancy started showing signs of an illness that
> afflicted her father who died suddenly at the age of 39. At the time
> her mother was told that her father had a rare illness that caused a
> cerebral hemorrhage that killed him.
> After Nancy learned she had this deadly illness, she began
> corresponding with the Minister of Health in Zagreb, Croatia. He
> kindly accepted and distributed informational packets that Nancy put
> together regarding the diagnosis and treatment of her illness. She
> disseminated the informational packets to her extended family
> members, many of whom are alive today because they were identified
> through family history research that lead to the early diagnosis and
> treatment of their affliction.
> At present there are some two thousand five hundred genealogical
> societies in the United States that represent approximately a million
> people who belong to these groups. One such group, The Federation of
> Genealogical Societies, represents around 560 genealogical societies
> and ultimately at least half a million individuals. There is no doubt
> that the study of family history is growing in popularity and is an
> important tool in researching ethnic identity and genetic health
> I urge you to join me in supporting the millions of American men and
> women who have researched their family history by co-sponsoring the
> "Family History Resolution." For more information on this resolution
> or to add your name as co-sponsor, please contact Chris Campbell in
