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 haven't gotten that message, just a "page not found" thing.
Not all of the genweb sites moved, there are quite a few still with
rootsweb. But the main Table of Contents page for Texas moved, and that
will lead you to all the counties, whether they moved or stayed on rootsweb.
Same for the main page for USGenWeb -- the links will lead you to the
states, no matter where they reside.
I'll send off an email asking about the Wilson Co. page.

You may or may not know that many of the USGenWeb sites have moved. If you have some of them bookmarked, you may want to check to see if you need to change anything.
Here are some of the new locations --

If you have trouble accessing anything, give it a few more days in case some are still in transition.

Subject: [TXBEXAR] 12th Annual Angelina College Genealogy Conference
REGISTRATION HAS BEGUN .....
For the 12th consecutive year, Angelina College at Lufkin, Texas will present its annual 3-day Conference,
Thursday thru Saturday, July 17-19, 2008. Come join us to ;pick up your "Keys to Discovery" from a cadre of experienced professional genealogists and speakers. Vendors will be on hand with the latest in books, maps, etc. Syllabus and lunch on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (and Friday dinner) are included in the registration fee.
Three special all-day sessions are offered that will carry their own syllabus (in addition to the one for the general Friday & Saturday conference).
1) FDR's 'New Deal' Genealogy. President Franklin Roosevelt's goal was to provide relief, recovery, and reform (the 3 R's) to people, and add to the economy of the United States during the Great Depression. We'll explore all those ABC programs he instigated and that have genealogical use: WPA, CCC, SS, SEC, etc. Primarily covering 1933-1938, this is also right after the 1930 census was taken so we'll look at how these records can bridge the gap until the 1940 census is released in 2012. (Trevia Wooster Beverly)
2) Writing Your Family History. From Getting Started, through Parts of a Book, to Digitizing Photographs and Documents and Page Layout and Design, this workshop will prepare you to publish that all-important book - the history of your family. Getting your photographs and documents into your computer with digital camera and scanners, plus receiving editing tips, will give you the confidence and expertise to go forward.
Dutch-treat dinner Thursday evening for those registered for these Thursday sessions, with the speakers (including those Fri & Sat speakers who arrive early). Place to be announced.,
3) SATURDAY SPECIAL: "A Day at the Seat of Justice" Visiting your Ancestral Courthouse. Join John for a fun-filled and informative day for research in the courthouse. Various record groups such as land, probate and vital records will be discussed. The various offices and their purpose will be addressed. The researcher will learn various techniques to get the most of public records. Unusual finds and information will be discussed. At the end of the day, you will be ready to tackle courthouses and reap the benefits. (John Sellers)
*** This all-day course may be part of your Fri-Sat schedule but must be registered for separately and carries an extra fee for the extra syllabus. Pre-registrations only.
Friday and Saturday, a choice of 21 topics. Susan Kaufman, director of Clayton Library, Alvie Davidson from Florida, Emily Croom, Charlie Gardes, Don Raney...
