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
There is now a look up volunteer listed on the website:

> NEWS AND NOTES AT ROOTSWEB
> ROOTSWEB'S WORLDCONNECT PROJECT
> by Robert R. Tillman, CEO <rrti(a)rootsweb.com>
> We are proud to announce the BETA TEST of the RootsWeb
> WorldConnect Project. Now you can upload, edit, delete and
> download to others your GEDCOMs on RootsWeb. We have developed
> GEDCOM software that is the most advanced on the Web to provide
> you with unprecedented control over your posted GEDCOMs. Key
> features include the ability to:
> o Upload a GEDCOM file generated by any of the major genealogy
> software applications WITHOUT first converting it to HTML.
> o Edit or delete your GEDCOMs as well as change the display or
> download options at any time.
> o Link the GEDCOM to your own home page.
> o Screen or remove information about living individuals from
> the GEDCOM.
> o Link Post-Em notes both from the GEDCOM originator and other
> RootsWeb users by attaching to the record of a particular
> individual. This capability is similar to the implementation of
> Post-Ems in RootsWeb's Social Security Death Index.
> o Link a GEDCOM to other GEDCOMs using Post-Ems.
> o Allow RootsWeb users to download subsets (portions) of the
> original GEDCOM starting with a specific person and choosing
> either ancestors or descendants.
> o Display GEDCOMs online in highly flexible ways. We think that
> this display capability is where RootsWeb WorldConnect Project
> really shines.
> Unlike with certain other Web sites, you have full control over
> your GEDCOM. You can change or remove it completely at any time
> and RootsWeb will never burn it onto a CD-ROM or charge others
> to access it.
> Check out this new capability at
> Search for individuals listed in uploaded GEDCOMs at
> Beat the crowds. Upload your GEDCOM now, but please remember
> that this is a beta test. We will change features of the
> offering based upon your feedback. You can expect that there
> will be malfunctions, problems, delays, etc. during this test.
> We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. Submit your
> complaints and suggestions for improvements to the RootsWeb
> GEDCOM Suggestions Board at
> You might also want to thank Randy Winch, the author of this
> wonderful new RootsWeb feature. He has devoted months to this
> project. Kudos to Randy!
