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
In the past 20 years, I have created websites on various topics. I
think my webpages number about 400. If you click on the following
link, you will be able to see some of the things I have done over the
years and that are still online. Much of it has been about genealogy.
I will be updating the information about my websites over the next two
My most recent work has been to accumulate almost 1400 obituaries and
other proofs for deceased graduates of Bethlehem Central High School
in Delmar, NY (Albany County). I taught science there for 23 years.
That webpage is part of my Bethlehem Central website. The website also
contains webpages about deceased teachers (over 110) and other staff
members (over 60) of the school system.
I earlier taught three years at New Lebanon Central High School in
very northern Columbia County, NY. Students from Stephentown in
southern Rensselaer County also attended. I have collected obituaries
for the school's graduates (380) plus teachers and other staff members
I have two genealogy websites for an eight county area with Albany
County at its center. One site was started in 2000 and has 1300 links.
The many broken links were fixed and put on a second site that was
smaller and contains only links to webpages of records. Now many of
those are broken as well (see below).
http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~clifflamere/genealogy/ (original site)
http://genealogy.clifflamere.com/ (newer site)
Broken links can be VERY important. The Wayback Machine (Internet
Archive) has copied those webpages and will show them to you even
though the links are currently broken. Just try a link. If it fails,
copy the link and paste it into the Internet Archive to see the
original webpage. If my rootsweb genealogy site gets removed along
with the Rootsweb mailing lists, the link to its home page can also be
found the same way. At first it appears that the missing webpage
cannot be found, but wait until the archive can find it.
I have enjoyed my 20 years using Rootsweb mailing lists and
corresponding with many of you.
