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
Rootsweb has changed the NDSHERID list to new servers.
The list name is changing from NDSHERID-L to just NDSHERID.
You may subscribe or unsub by sending your request to:
NDSHERID-request(a)rootsweb.com with one exception: if you wish to subscribe
in Digest mode you must send your subscribe request to
You may also continue sending your requests as you always have -- either
will work. The word SUBSCRIBE or UNSUBSCRIBE *must* be included in the
subject and may also be included in the message body.
Digest subscribers will notice some changes to the list digests. New
instructions will be added to the digests -- please read them. In addition,
the digest volume and issue number may be different (out of sequence) from
what you had been receiving. If your digests arrive in a different format
than you are used to and you would like it changed, contact me privately at
the list admin address: NDSHERID-admin(a)rootsweb.com. Also, if you run into
any unusual or confusing occurrences with mail from this list that could
possibly be related to the changeover, let me know.
If you use email headers to filter list mail to a special folder in your
email program you may need to check whether your filters will need tweaking
under the test system.
If you previously subscribed to the list in both L and D modes using the
same email address you will find that you are no longer subbed in Digest
mode. The new software doesn't permit the same address to be subbed in both
L and D modes. Therefore, if you wish to receive both modes, you will need
to subscribe to the digests using a different email address.
