Roots Web grew to host uncountable mailing listof many subjects, surnames, places, etc. These mailing lists were freeto 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 sufferhealth issues. My speculation is outgrew its existence and its host wasunable to keep up without a major and costly overhaul. After a yearplus, Roots Web reopened its doors, but a lot of her faithfulsubscribers had lost interest or found other vehicles to convey theirpassages of information. During this time, other updates on the Internethave occurred. These changes have caused some subscribers unable toparticipate. Not qualified to expand on this other than to say that somefolks have lost connection with Roots Web,DEATH: 2 March 2020. Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Listsfunctionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer beable to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally,administration tools will no longer be available to list administratorsand mailing lists will be put into an archival state.BURIAL: Archives will be available to peruse. No further information asto where, how long, or whether a price tag will be added.Hope this helps.Susan Penn Groover_______________________________________________Middlesex County Connecticut [CTMIDDLE] LINKS:[WIKI]  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middlesex_County,_Connecticut[FamilySearch.org Research WIKI]  https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Middlesex_County,_Connecticut_Genealogy[CTGenWeb]  http://www.ctgenweb.org/county/comiddlesex/[RW Message Board]  https://www.ancestry.com/boards/localities.northam.usa.states.connecticut.counties.middlesex/mb.ashx_______________________________________________Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebprefUnsubscribe https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/ctmiddle@rootsweb.comPrivacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY  Terms and Conditions: https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blogRootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb community_______________________________________________Middlesex County Connecticut [CTMIDDLE] LINKS:[WIKI]  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middlesex_County,_Connecticut[FamilySearch.org Research WIKI]  https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Middlesex_County,_Connecticut_Genealogy[CTGenWeb]  http://www.ctgenweb.org/county/comiddlesex/[RW Message Board]  https://www.ancestry.com/boards/localities.northam.usa.states.connecticut.counties.middlesex/mb.ashx_______________________________________________Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebprefUnsubscribe https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/ctmiddle@rootsweb.comPrivacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY  Terms and Conditions: https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blogRootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb community_______________________________________________Middlesex County Connecticut [CTMIDDLE] LINKS:[WIKI]  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middlesex_County,_Connecticut[FamilySearch.org Research WIKI]  https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Middlesex_County,_Connecticut_Genealogy[CTGenWeb]  http://www.ctgenweb.org/county/comiddlesex/[RW Message Board]  https://www.ancestry.com/boards/localities.northam.usa.states.connecticut.counties.middlesex/mb.ashx_______________________________________________Email preferences: http://bit.ly/rootswebprefUnsubscribe https://lists.rootsweb.com/postorius/lists/ctmiddle@rootsweb.comPrivacy Statement: https://ancstry.me/2JWBOdY  Terms and Conditions: https://ancstry.me/2HDBym9Rootsweb Blog: http://rootsweb.blogRootsWeb is funded and supported by Ancestry.com and our loyal RootsWeb community
