    1. [AUS-WA] Closure of Rootsweb Mailing Lists
    2. Kim Milne
    3. Rootsweb has sent the following:- 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. However, as an alternative, I've created a list on the https://groups.io platform which operates in the same form as the present Rootsweb system. You can find it at https://groups.io/g/AUS-WA and if you scroll down to the lower left you'll find the links to subscribe, unsubscribe, post messages etc. I should point out that Rootsweb lists will operate as normal until the 2nd of March, 2020.
