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
This mailing list receives posts that are forwarded from the companion
Message Board. This is called the gateway.
Because of the new board system that is now in place those posts now

Below this statement there is a link which will take you to the
message board where
you can post your reply.
Any questions or comments please direct them off the list to
