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
Merry Christmas to you, too, Admin!
I have enjoyed networking with other Louisiana genealogy researchers this year. The Louisiana Genealogy Blog Yahoo group has grown to 99 members, My Heritage Louisiana Genealogy Blog has 13 members with 10,000 visitors, and there have been over 29,000 visitors to the Louisiana Genealogy Blog on blogger. Whew! That's alot of visits in three short years. Of course there are all of my Facebook friends, Twitter friends and genealogy groups that I belong to, that I wish a very safe and happy new year.
The Louisiana Cemetery Preservation NING has enjoyed a few successes this year too and now has a nice collection of photographs thanks to those who have submitted them. Of course, these photos are of abandoned or neglected cemeteries. The NING has over 50 members now.
I hope that the social networking sites created in the last year or so have been somewhat helpful to genealogy and cemetery researchers. Even if the social networking groups/sites are not active daily, they are of some use to someone.
Have a great holiday season everyone!
