    1. [FLLEE] new list home is FL-LEE
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Lee county mailing list has been set up. In a few minutes, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list who wish to join the new group will be able to do so. I can not add members directly. It should be a link you can click that will let you 'accept' the invitation to join the new group. You may need to check your spam folder as I can't say when such will be delivered. If you don't find an invitation in your email you may also go to this site - https://groups.io/g/FL-LEE and select Join Group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1. Tim Stowell

    1. [FLLEE] Status of the Lee county mailing list - 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of now, the Lee county mailing list has 23 subscribers. In light of this list closing on March 2nd, with the full knowledge of the list owner - Susan Penn Groover, I have set up a new home for this list. I've recently set up similar homes for other Florida Rootsweb lists that will be going defunct next month. In my next email, later today, I'll send you further information regarding this and how to join the new home for this list. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    1. [FLLEE] Ramblings from the Backseat
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Ramblings from the Backseat*_/ 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. I have already announced that as of March 2^nd , when Roots Web ceases to function as a mailing list that I will be hanging up my administrator's hat. These are my observations and suggestions going forward. First and foremost, someone needs to step-up to be new administrator, chairman, leader, whatever title you like. Next a decision should be made whether to remain a mailing list or a bulletin board. Of course, what is to say both could be established. I personally have not read, but Dick Eastman has endorsed Group.io as a venue for mailing list. From what little time I have had, I would lean toward Group.io to maintain mailing list format. I have no experience with bulletin boards therefore I have no input. I am hearing Facebook, but I have issues with privacy and whether someone would make the site secure enough. I am sure there are other venues for bulletin board format. Can not stop someone setting up FB account, just do not bother to invite me. Also, Ancestry has an established bulletin board area, it is functioning. Due to the activity on most state lists, my next suggestion would be that county mailing lists consolidate to form one state list. When activity is established divide into regions. Too much activity then establish a county list (start at the top and drill down). Under the blanket of a state list posting could use subject line to keep the identity of the county ie; SUBJECT: [AL-SUMTER] Looking for … Surname lists are a horse of a different color. Suggestion here would be to make use of subject line. Kinda like reading a newspaper, the subject line is like a headline of a newspaper. Personally I pay attention to an informative subject line. A worry in the back of my mind is with the “mass exodus” from Roots Web to other venue on whether that venue can handle the new activity or whether “we” will cause that venue to crash and burn. Here's hoping that is a needless concern. Once the list is established … there needs to be centralized place where a directory or a place of registration that searching community would go to find the list. Since I am US based, USGenWeb comes to mind. This maybe more difficult step. USGenWeb sites are individually maintained. Hearing rumblings that this may be solved in the near future. Last concern (for the moment) would be “being nice and playing well with others.” Personally, have not experienced this problem. Frustration, maybe. Especially when Roots Web fell apart and returned “fixed” with continuing problems. For example, I still have to push through a post from someone using AOL. AOL users … this is why your post takes a little longer to be seen. Sorry, I do my best with the tools I have to work with. Patience is probably going to be the keyword in days to come. Patience with the leaders that will step forward. They are going to be putting a lot on their plates and will need support in establishing a new venue and getting it working, establishing their rules, etc. Congratulation to those lists that have found a “new home.” From what I see you are in good hands! Will try to make this last posting to those newly adopted lists. (Posting to all lists today.) At this point in time, Family Trees, Message Boards, Web Sites, & Wiki at Roots Web are not effected to my knowledge. Of course, Message Boards are already part of Ancestry. So open conversation. Work on finding a volunteer to lead the list forward. I'm gonna stop rambling for the moment. I'm here till they turn off the lights and lock the door. Susan

    1. [FLLEE] Genealogy of Roots Web
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    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

    1. [FLLEE] Update
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. Hi everyone! This has been heavy on my heart since Ancestry / Roots Web announcement. I have been admin / moderator for various mailing lists for 25+ years (some lists that predate Roots Web). The options for change do not fit my personal criteria. This is, also, not happening at a time I am able to give personal time for this change. Plus, I think Ancestry is not given an adequate “heads up” for this change. (I personally admin 200+ lists) So I have made the decision to become a subscriber as opposed to an administrator. I will remain admin to the mailing lists I currently admin till Roots Web makes the changes they propose on March 2^nd . I am leaving the decision for change to the list members. I am still gathering options. I will post suggestions in the next few days. The major option I am hearing is Facebook. I suppose this could work. But Facebook, in my humble opinion, would be turning a mailing list into a message board. And various mailing list members have stated they would not Facebook. Personally, I am in this bucket. I have personal issues with Facebook. Open discussion on the list. Voice your opinion. Enough for now. Will post more on other options in the future. Susan Penn Groover, List Administrator --- Genealogy: Where you confuse the dead and irritate the living.

The first is a photograph of William Titsworth REEVES which was taken at the Pratt Studio in Aurora, IL sometime in the early 1900's with William likely in his 50's at the time it was taken. The second photograph is one of Theodosia REEVES taken at the same studio sometime in the 1890's with Theodosia likely in her 30's at the time. She is also identified as "Mother" on the back of the photograph. The third photograph is of Lydia WARE REEVES and her grandson Donald REEVES, and her daughter Lou REEVES. This photograph was also taken at the Pratt Studio sometime in the early 1900s. Notes on the back of the third photograph indicate that Lydia is "Grandma" and Lou is "Aunt" and that Donald was the son of Harry REEVES whose mother died in his childbirth. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding the family: William Titsworth REEVES was b. 29 Oct 1856 in Aurora, IL to parents Charles Henry REEVES (1830-1923) and Lydia Bishop TOMLINSON (1830-1911). William was one of 5 children born to this couple including, William Titsworth; Joseph Tomlinson; Louise; Charles Henry; and George Cottrell or Cattrell REEVES all born between 1855 and 1871. William married Theodosa Gould RUGGLES (1856-1973) and they had five children including, Helen; Allan or Allen Gould; Marjorie; Louisa; and George REEVES, all born between 1884 and 1895. William died 24 Oct 1938 in Oshkosh, WI. Theodosia Gould RUGGLES was b. 8 Feb 1856 in Essex, NY to parents George Fitch RUGGLES (1818-1893) and Louesa GOULD (1825-1908) who were married in Rutland, VT on 26 Apr 1855. Theodosia was their only child. Theodosia died 13 Sept 1946 in Oshkosh, WI and is buried with family in the Spring Lake Cemetery in Aurora, IL. Donald Howell REEVES was b. 2 Jan 1891 in Aurora, IL to parents Charles Henry REEVES (1868-1945) and Anna Louise HOWELL (1868-1893). Donald was their only child. Donald married Anna Stevens CHRISMAN (1882-1974) in West Chester, PA on 18 Sept 1916. The couple had two children, Ann Elizabeth REEVES (1917-2008) and Charles Chrisman REEVES (1919-2013). Donald died 12 Jan 1972 in Fort Myers, FL and is buried in the Fort Myers Memorial Gardens in Fort Myers. Louise Tomlinson REEVES was b. 15 Mar 1862 in Aurora, IL and died 19 Jul 1945 in Pasadena, CA and is buried with family in the Spring Lake Cemetery in Aurora, IL. Lydia died in 1911 and is buried in the Spring Lake Cemetery in Aurora, IL. Lydia TOMLINSON REEVES may be identified here as Lydia WARE in correctly since WARE was her Mother's married name having married Mr. WARE after her first husband Mr. TOMLINSON passed. I am hoping to locate someone from the family so that these wonderful old photographs can be returned to the care of family.

Lydia TOMLINSON REEVES may be identified here as Lydia WARE in correctly since WARE was her Mother's married name having married Mr. WARE after her first husband Mr. TOMLINSON passed. I am hoping to locate someone from the family so that these wonderful old photographs can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    3. Are you sure? I just checked Lee cty site; cost is $10.00 and you can get WITHOUT cause of death. Not sure what "fine print" you were reading but my reading of the text [see below] you can get. From the Lee Cty website-- [I have highlighted and italicize the text for you--the word "without" was bolded by the county] By Florida law: Death and fetal death certificates without the cause of death are public record and may be obtained by anyone, no identification is required. Death and fetal death certificates with the cause of death are confidential and may only be obtained by eligible persons as listed below upon valid identification, any required documentation, and payment of the proper fee. Spouse, mother, father, sibling, grandchild, grandparent Any person who provides proper documentation showing they are a beneficiary of an insurance policy or benefactor of a will, or other documentation that demonstrates his or her interest in the estate of the decedent. Guardian or legal representative of one of the individuals named above with proper documentation or by court order. If you are an eligible person, you may authorize another person to order the death certificate showing the cause of death on your behalf by completing anAffidavit to Release Cause of Death Information and providing them with a copy of your valid identification and any required documentation. The original affidavit is to be submitted along with a completed Application for Florida Death Record. I have ordered and received DC from FL (ordered from Jacksonville) and can not get the "cause of death" since not one of the listed options. Did have to provide my driver's license. Easy enough to do; I filled out the form and printed-then made a copy [keep the first one for my records] with my license on it signed the DL copy added my check and mailed. Cost $5.00. Might want to give that a read again.

    3. Good grief!! What happen to using "old fashion methods"? You could google the name and try and find an address and phone number. Then you could either call or write a letter to this person you are trying to contact. Not everyone embraces the new world of technology and social media for many reasons.
