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
Barbara Poythress Neal alerted me to a special opportunity for the public to watch/listen to a free encore webinar presentation by Craig R. Scott, (has a Poythress family connection and has been a generous contributor to this list over the years) focused on finding North Carolina Revolutionary War Ancestors. Many of us may have interests related both to our Poythress lines and allied families. The flier detailing the opportunity is shared on the Poythress site at:
Craig “has been a professional genealogical and historical researcher for more than thirty years who specializes in the records of the National Archives. He is a member of the Company of Military Historians, is on the editorial board of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, and is a Director of the Association of Professional Genealogists. He has authored seventeen books and several articles in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Family Chronicle, and other genealogical publications. He is the President and CEO of Heritage Books, Inc., a genealogical publishing firm with over 5,300 titles in print.” (Free Webinar Flier).
You can go directly to www.ncgenealogy.com <http://www.ncgeneaology.com/> for more information and to view the webinar.
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.
