RootsWeb heads for an archival afterlife

From the RootsWeb Administration (https://home.rootsweb.com):

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.

As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community.

Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community.

Sincerely,

The RootsWeb team

There goes another piece of family history based history!
