    1. [ENG-WESTMORLAND] ADMIN: new home for this list
    2. Lynne
    3. Dear all I'm very pleased to announce that the Eng-Westmorland list will have a new home at Cumbria Family History Society (, effective with the closing of RootsWeb lists on 2 March 2020. John Steel, webmaster of the Society, will give us the details on how to use the Society's facilities. Many thanks to you, John, and to the Society, for taking this on. Before this list closes, if you want future researchers looking at this list's archives to be able to contact you, post your interests. There are over 200 people subscribed to this list, but only one (thank you, Art!) has posted his Westmorland interests so that in the future he can be contacted. See my message at <> for more about posting your interests. If your research takes you away from Westmorland, check out where many former RootsWeb lists have been re-created. A search for keywords, such as the county name and the word RootsWeb, should bring up the relevant list. There's also a group just to announce former RootsWeb lists -- -- but not all former RootsWeb lists are there yet. It's been a pleasure administering this list. I hope to see many of you on or on the Ancestry/RootsWeb message boards. Take care and best of luck with your research. Kind regards, Lynne
