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
I have spent the last two days downloading stuff from my hard drive to
floppies prior to my hard drive going into the PC shop for a CD rewriter
to be installed.
Unfortunately, I had about 30 emails waiting to be answered. I have no
record of them. Can you resend me emails if you have written to me
during the last ten days. (especially interested in the descendant of
Willam G Howdon called Clive that emailed me last night!)
I must have done something dreadful during all this unloading!!!
When I turned on the PC this morning, it hung on the opening screen.
So I spent over two hours dragging a geriatric laptop out of the attic
and reloading it with a server!
I am unsubscribing later today from all my lists until next week. Monday
is P.C. fix-it day, but it MIGHT take a lot longer!!!
(My new LDS version 3 viewer arrived this moring and I cannot use it on
this laptop!!! And to crown it all its raining again.)

Welcome to the SOG-UK 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.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
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.
3. Proofread and be sure you want your post public. All posts go in the archives!
WANT TO UNSUBSCRIBE?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and put unsubscribe in the subject and body and nothing else.
