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.

    3. Randall, Ancestry took over Roots Web a few years back.  On March 2nd Roots Web will cease to process email.  The archives will still be accessible (I'm placing bets till this goes away.)

    3. Ancestry bought Rootsweb in 2002. And they mucked Rootsweb to the point some have been rendered useless or broken. Even their message boards have not been debugged and they're telling us to use them. David Samuelsen On 1/9/2020 8:09 PM, [email protected] wrote: > What is happening?
