Like a number of other Rootsweb genealogy mailing lists List Administrators, I have started migrating some of my Rootsweb mailing lists, to groups.io, which apparently offers a superior mailing lists facility. If five or more subscribers to this list, each post to this list, requests for me to also migrate this list to groups.io, I will set up a group for this list, on groups.io. So, if you want this genealogy mailing list to continue, I need for at least five subscribers to each post messages, stating this. Remember, all Rootsweb genealogy mailing lists are scheduled to cease operation, as of 02 March 2020. -- Bret Busby List Administrator Armadale West Australia ..............
