    3. /_*Genealogy of Roots Web*_/ Since most of us are genealogists or family historians, I write this to answer the primary questions I am receiving in “genealogy speak.” Mailing lists were scattered about the Internet prior to the conception of Roots Web (ie: AOL, Prodigy, Compuserve, and others) BIRTH: Sometime in 1996, Karen & Brian Leverich, conceived what it is now known as Roots Web. Roots Web grew to host uncountable mailing list of many subjects, surnames, places, etc. These mailing lists were free to its users/subscribers. MARRIAGE: June 2000. Roots Web was married (purchased by) Ancestry, Inc. with prenuptial agreement that mailing list services would remain free. I believe to be sometime in 2015, our beloved Roots Web began to suffer health issues. My speculation is outgrew its existence and its host was unable to keep up without a major and costly overhaul. After a year plus, Roots Web reopened its doors, but a lot of her faithful subscribers had lost interest or found other vehicles to convey their passages of information. During this time, other updates on the Internet have occurred. These changes have caused some subscribers unable to participate. Not qualified to expand on this other than to say that some folks have lost connection with Roots Web, DEATH: 2 March 2020. 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. BURIAL: Archives will be available to peruse. No further information as to where, how long, or whether a price tag will be added. Hope this helps. Susan Penn Groover

    3. I remember when our mailing lists were extremely lively. Sometimes too much so. Then there was an occasion when a number of people were suspended because of the way they talked to others in ways that weren’t about genealogy. All of a sudden, the activity on the lists dropped to a tiny fraction of what it had been. This is mostly Massachusetts related lists, but there were others. Since that time the activity never recovered. Then there’s David McCann (sp?). His definition of what is and isn’t allowable is so strict that no one can say anything. He wouldn’t let me post because I accept donations on the MA Vital Records Project site. I used to be the assistant state coordinator for MA on GenWeb, county coordinator for Essex county, town coordinator for Ipswich and Bradford and other things. Now I just try to work on my vital records site I have some CT records but no time to do them. My records have to be in a particular format so that I can put them online. I may not have as big a following as many others, but I’m satisfied.

    1. [CTMIDDLE] Re: Genealogy of Roots Web
    2. March 2 ALL the Rootsweb (freepages.rootsweb) are going away? is that correct? IF SOMEONE used Rootsweb as a platform for vital records, like I did, are these going away too, or is it just the mailing lists?? Some of us are posting on Facebook Groups, which hopefully won't be trashed at some future date! There's a Group for a whole raft of surnames & locations as well. MY QUESTION: do I have to move all the vital records I transcribed years ago somewhere other than Rootsweb, b/c, if so, I need to do it NOW.

    3. Hi, Coralynn. Did you get my e-mail the other day? I asked about the Genealogical Gleaners Award Page. There seem to be several broken links. One of those is for my MA Vital Records Project. You still have the link pointing to freepages. The correct address has been http://ma-vitalrecords.org since 2007. As my site never exchanges information with my visitors I do not need https protocol. I may investigate what needs to be done at some time in the future. But, with the 100’s of 1000’s of pages that I have, the task might take me years.
