    1. [BESSEY] Notice about Rootsweb Lists
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. This has been received from the Rootsweb administration: 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 If anyone has an interest in finding alternative communication possibilities and/or suggestions for alternatives, please send a note to the list to that effect ASAP. With heavy hearts, Jim and Di

    1. [BESSEY] Catherine Besses born 1860 in NY
    2. Vinita Shaw
    3. The Bessey family appear in New York in the mid- to late-1800s, leaving a handful of records and many descendants puzzling how they hook up with the earlier Besse families of New England. The Bessey family has roots in England, Germany, and probably France. Many people are descended from Anthony Bessey, who came to America in the Great Migration, about 1634-1635. A number of families are descended from German Besses and Besseys.  ("Descendants of Anthony Besse 1609-1656" by Florence Balentine) I am searching for Catherine "Katy" Dean Besses born Nov 8, 1860 in Oneida NY, married about 1881 to Ebenenzer Welthy Hunt born May 1851 in Newstead, Erie Co, NY.

    2. Jim Jackson
    3. This list has just been re-activated and we just want to encourage you all to make use of it in your family searches. A large number of Rootsweb lists have been made inactive due to no messages over a period of time. We want to keep as many lists active as we possibly can and your participation will help toward that goal. If you have a "brick wall" in your family search, send in a message to the list address with as much information as you have and let's see if someone may be able to help fill in those blanks. Best wishes, Jim and Di
