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

Listers might be interested in my HIGTON HERITAGE family history
website, that I put online recently. It explores the genealogy of the
HIGTON family that originated in Cromford, Derbyshire, and also that of
my wife's ancestors from the Bradford area. It can be found here:
If viewing on a tablet, the display is best if you click on the "Mobile"
option at the foot of the homepage
The principal Nottinghamshire names included are: HIGTON
(ex-Wirksworth), CHAPMAN (ex-Colston Bassett), CASTLEDINE and DRING
(ex-Bingham), BRADBURY (Selston), RICHARDS (ex-Ilkeston). You will find
a fuller list also at the foot of the homepage. Click on any of the
names to see who's there.
I developed the website using the facilities offered by the Guild of One
Name Studies. You can check to see if one of your names of interest is a
registered study here:

The "Cloud" that appears after you type in your name will show the
registered studies that include the name. Click on any of them for
My study remains work in progress, and I have a lot of data still to

information and, particularly, suggestions where I have made errors.

Welcome to the NOTTSGEN mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.

1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
