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
As many of you may or may not be aware of, Rootsweb's lists are going
through changes. They are being changed to the Mailman program to
administer the various list's needs, such as subscribing, unsubscribing,
etc. For the past month or so, I have participated in a beta trial
program to work out the bugs of switching from one program to another
and I can attest that this will be fairly painless. However, some may
find some changes and have questions. So, for the first week or so, the
list is open to address those issues as they arise and I will be here to
answer any questions you my have, either on the list of off the list.
Rootsweb has devised a schedule for switching the many lists that they
have over to Mailman. This list is due to change over on Thursday,
August 24th. If there are changes in the schedule or if you are
interested in when your other lists will convert, you can check the
