    1. [ANGLO-IRISH] Anglo-Irish transition from RootsWeb to Groups.io
    2. Doug Raymond
    3. Dear RootsWeb group members, Before RootsWeb/Ancestry shuts down our [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> email service in March we are moving to a better email list called Groups.io. Our new email address will be [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> The move will be simple, free, and everything will look the same except for the group email address. The new group will have easy access to all the previous messages at RootsWeb, which Ancestry has promised to preserve. Groups.io will keep your info private, they will not share it with others like Google or FaceBook do. To move to the new group you will only need to click an acceptance. No need to change your email or create any new account. Ways to join: -you can click this link to send an email to join: <mailto:[email protected]> [email protected] -you can click the Join This Group button at our new website: https://groups.io/g/Anglo-Irish -Otherwise, we the Moderators, will send you an invitation to join and you only need to click to accept. Any information pertinent to Anglo-Irish group can be sent to both old and new groups, as this message is, so all members will see it. Eventually we will send only to the new [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> We are sure you will enjoy this greatly improved email sharing service. Elizabeth and Doug, Moderators Elizabeth Knowlton [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> Douglas Raymond [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> Doug

    1. [ANGLO-IRISH] Remember our Rootsweb lists are still working
    2. Elizabeth W Knowlton
    3. Hi, In a few days I will create new mailing lists on Groups.io     Then I will email you-all with an invitation to join the new one.     All you will have to do is click it and choose how you will get your emails.     These Rootsweb lists will remain active until March.  Fell free to post to them because your posts will remain in the Rootsweb Mailing List archives (it is said).  It is just that nothing new can be posted after Mar 2.  I suggest you put your email addresses into your posts so that if anyone reads them in the future, s/he will be able to reach you.     If you are nervous about posting your address, I suggest you type it in as something spammers will have a harder time picking up, like knowlton at earthlink.net Elizabeth On 1/11/2020 5:44 PM, Beverly Walker via ANGLO-IRISH wrote: > There is a bit of a panic with all of this.

    2. Elizabeth W Knowlton
    3. OK, Everyone, I have not set up the group yet. LOL.  Please do not worry.  We have over a month to do this (march 2).  I will create the group in the next couple of days.     I administer 3 groups and subscribe to 7 more so am pretty overwhelmed with the 80 + emails I am getting a day just about this subject.     After I set it up, you will get an invitation to join and will just click on something, do not need to do much unless you want to get involved more deeply with the whole io thing.  I have already responded to several invitations and have joined the groups by clicking and then indicating how I want to get my emails.     There has been almost no activity on this list until now. More lol.  Go ahead and post stuff, which will remain in the searchable Rootsweb archives.  You can always repeat it in the new group later.

They ask that you set up an email address which to my mind might be [email protected] Then you have to write a brief description of what the group covers. THere are a couple of other things that need to be filled in but it appears to be just that simple. I am not sure how the administrator is set up. Like you, Sue, I am a bit challenged. I do know to join you can't just go to the group name but to the http.//groups.io/g/ and finally the title of the group.... I learned the hard way, I am registered so I have been immediately added as these groups have been created. Christina from Irl-Dublin has sent one up to take the place of the Rootsweb list.

    2. I have not had to pay a fee but as I said, I am not very savvy when it comes to these sites. I just did join the Derbysgen new site with no difficulty though. I am just hoping that this is a viable alternative.

    2. Hi Elizabetth, The Derbysgen group is looking to develop a new list on "groups.io" I do belong to a Monmouthshire Wales group that uses this platform and is quite active. I was pleased to see that at least one other list is considering this. I am not great with Internet sites even though I have been on Rootsweb for a long time. This list has been so valuable! I would hate to see it vanish.

    3. That sounds great, Carol,     Could you get back with me in early February with info and opinions?  I don't want us to disappear.     I feel very overwhelmed right now with several lists and a lot of stuff going on.     I do know that the Knowlton wikitree stuff is great--just never have received anything from being on Google groups.

    1. [ANGLO-IRISH] Four Courts 1922 Dublin fire "replacement"
    2. Elizabeth W Knowlton
    3. Can't believe I sent this out to other lists and forgot you-all! There is a new and exciting project happening in Dublin. The aim is to try to replace the lost archives from the Four Courts fire in Dublin in 1922. The second phase of the project has just received funding. All the details are here: https://beyond2022.ie/ I have not read all of this.  However, I remember using (on films) 19th century research done in the Four Courts building that the researchers then made available to the rest of us after the fire. Some of it is quite famous.  Now with computers and digitization, I should think that masses of such research could be brought together to make more of a whole. -- Elizabeth

    3. I guess we'll never stop chewing gum!

    1. [ANGLO-IRISH] [EXTERNAL] FTDNA test
    2. Elizabeth W Knowlton
    3. Here is the latest DNA testing sale: https://mailchi.mp/familytreedna/save-up-to-40-during-our-thanksgiving-sale?e=d44f618c76 By now you probably think that I get a cut of their sales, but no.  I have used my brother's and my own DNA to take a variety of tests with FamilyTreeDNA and with Ancestry.  I continue to find that people do not understand the tests or their purposes so feel free to email me with questions.     I agree that if you are not interested in doing genealogical research and do not want to respond to people emailing you for help, that if all you want is to know your "ethnicities" (whatever those might be and which will come up differently for even siblings) and find out who your immediate cousins are (if you do not know), then Ancestry's single test, the autosomal (or "cousin) test is the best for your purposes simply because it has the largest number of participants.  It might even help you if you have an adopted ancestor although in six months I have made no more progress with this than I did with paper research.     Otherwise, I have been most happy with FamilyTreeDNA's many tests, especially the Y test, which I recommend for any male who has a brick wall after a few generations.  Check the website to see what surname projects are offered because you get the best use of your test if there is a group of others with your same surname, especially if yours is Gaelic, so many of them clan names.  This site might interest you even if there is not a specific surname site for you.     https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/ireland-heritage/about     If any of you have extra money to spend and are just plain curious about new scientific information, take a look at the really big Y DNA tests.  Your taking those will not advance your genealogy at this time but will increase the database that furthers genealogical DNA research.  You'll understand more than I do if you study parts of their site.     Happy Thanksgiving to those in the States, and go for a walk! -- Elizabeth
