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
Found this today while checking some online records:
Chesterfield County Deed Book 15 1800-1802 LVA Reel # 6

causes emancipates Kate, Cresse [dau of sd Kate] Harriett [dau of sd Cresse]
and John âson of the said Cresseârec February court 1801â
Due to Rootsweb's decision to close all mailing lists the Poythress group has moved to Groups.io/g/Poythress for continuation of the discussion list. The message archive (1997 - March, 2020) will remain accessible via Rootsweb.
