    1. [Bowles] This list is going away

    3. I am shocked about this. We've been sharing information and helping one another on this list for over 20 years. If you don't believe it, see https://lists.rootsweb.com/hyperkitty/list/bowles.rootsweb.com/1998/1/. Thank you subscribers and contributors over the years. Here is the text of the announcement to all of us listowners: 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 Our Message Board is quite useful: https://www.ancestry.com/boards/surnames.bowles/mb.ashx. There are 2290 messages on it! I urge you to use it, and all the boards, especially because you can upload photos and other images to the boards, which are not available here on the list. Usually posting to the Locality board is most useful, by the way. We do have the option to create a list elsewhere, and I'm willing to do that, if subscribers want that. Groups.io and Google Groups seem the most likely option. Here is an example of a Groups.io mail list: https://groups.io/g/newzealand/ | Google Groups: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/1720cowanimmigrant *If you are interested, please respond.* If not, that's fine too. I'll miss you here, no matter what the future holds. Valorie -- http://about.me/valoriez - pronouns: she/her

    3. Valorie, One of my more active lists just transferred to groups.io. I hate to see the lists go away even though several of the ones I belong to are not very active. Some of the yahoo groups that my husband had joined also moved to groups.io. I haven't enough experience with them to recommend them but that is an option.
