    1. [GABACON]status of GABacon list 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of this moment, the Bacon county list has 41 subscribers. With the demise of this list on 3/2, a new home for the list has been set up. In a few minutes, I'll be sending out invitations to join the new GA-BACON group. 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. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1. However, I want to pass along a little bit of who I am and why my interest in this list and others. I am a native of Coweta county, the third generation of my family there. Over the years I've lived in three other counties in the state - Morgan, Newton, Gwinnett. In 1996, I ran across a childhood playmate, who introduced me to USGenWeb, a project I've been with since. I've held many roles in that organization and currently host websites in Tennessee, New York, Minnesota, Louisiana and Alaska for USGenWeb. I host sites in North Dakota, Wisconsin, Georgia for AHGP (American History and Genealogy Project) and/or ALHN (American Local History Network) approximately 50 websites. My interest in Bacon county comes from having known a previous county coordinator who died way too young. I'm currently working with 118 lists and have asked for a dozen more... I've learned more from genealogy and history research than school or life has taught me on a host of subjects. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    1. [GABACON]Leave a Farewell Message
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Leave a Farewell Message*_/ This post was by Judith to MODAVIES: suggestion: People may want to post a "farewell" message on the mailing list before it goes to archive, and in this message include an email you plan to keep for the foreseeable future. A separate email could be set up expressly for this purpose if it is more convenient/secure. (You'll want web-based, not provider-based.) That way, if someone peruses the archive & finds a possible connection, they would have a way to get in touch with you privately. I have been on a couple of lists that went archival at some point, and I really wish I had done that, as our old email was provider-based and - once that provider went defunct, people looking through the defunct mailing list had no way to contact me (nor I them) It's easier to track people down these days, but I'd still suggest this. I think this to be an excellent idea, wish I thought it. I would like to expand to suggest that a post to include Your name, best address to reach you (one that might be dedicated to your genealogy research), a list surname(s) of interest, a list to places of interest (country, region, state, county), subject of interest, snail mail address (at your own risk), telephone number (again at your own risk), web address if you have a website, where you “moved.” Please keep in mind these to be suggestions and you should only provide what you would be comfortable for “ibots” to find. Might not want to wait to last minute. This would give system to process information and have it posted. With this in mind, please do not be concerned when you see my post to the nearly 300 (took inventory; final count was 298 – just sharing) mailing lists I admin. I will be leaving my time capsule to the list(s) in the coming days. But I will be here til Roots Web turn off the lights and lock the door. Let me take a few lines to acknowledge all the “thank-you” I have received. I started with a few surnames and expanded to counties more recently. But you are all “welcomed.” I try serve with the volunteer spirit and a happy heart. Please overlook my frustration that may boil to the top in the coming days. Susan

    1. [GABACON]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. [GABACON]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. [GABACON]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.

    1. [GABACON]Roots Web no longer supporting mailing list in March 2020
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. For those that have not heard the news ... Rootsweb will no longer be supporting mailing lists in March 2020.  It will remain read only, so archives will be accessible.  In my mind, I question how long. Please keep in mind that each mailing list archives is the property of RootsWeb and will not be able to moved, removed, etc. Only the mailing list members list will be accessible by the admin for that list. I am looking for alternatives which I have started listing below. Alternatives: Ancestry -- as I understand, this alternative is platform based. Meaning one would have to long into to post a message as opposed to simply sending an e-mail. Groups.io -- would keep mailing, but to get full function a fee would be required. Google Groups -- I have not researched this option.  Personally, I have issues with Google and will not pursue this option as admin. I suppose the major decision is whether to remain an e-mail based Group or platform based? My personal prerequisite is that it is FREE. Discussion in open...

    2. Robert B. Noles
    3.  Dear Wiregrass Georgia Counties RootsWeb Members, Recently it occurred to me that the interest and use of RootsWeb for genealogy research had fallen way off.  While there are no doubt many reasons for that, I believe people's use of FACEBOOK is a big contributor to the decline in the use of RootsWeb. I have also noticed a big increase in Facebooks for genealogy research groups.  I have avoided use of Facebook for any reason for many years, because I wasn't interested in people's trivia (no offence).  However, for the past few months I have discovered a lot of Facebook traffic for genealogical related research.   For me, I find the use of Facebook less restrictive than the RootsWeb rules imposed by tradition and now by Ancestry.com that owns RootsWeb. Therefore, for those of us who want to freely discuss Wiregrass Georgia genealogy including genetic (DNA) testing (involving the use of for profit companies that do the testing), with the ability to post pictures, files, etc. and with no particular rules other than being respectful of each other, I have created a Facebook Group for: Wiregrass Georgia Genealogical Research You are invited to join us for a rewarding Genealogical experience.  You can request membership via: https://www.facebook.com/groups/263664400462192/ Sincerely, Rob NolesRobert B.

    1. [GABACON] Descendants and Friends of the 50th Georgia Infantry Regiment:
    2. Dear Descendants and Friends of the 50th Georgia Infantry Regiment: I want to share some exciting news about the upcoming dedication of a historical interpretive marker to honor the sacrifice of the men of the 50th Georgia at the Battle of Fox's Gap, MD. The marker will be formally dedicated on Friday, September 7, along a walking trail near the spot on which the 50th Georgia gallantly fought on September 14, 1862. Although final details for the ceremony are still being completed, the time of the dedication is tentatively set for 10:00 AM. I have been working for the past year on the possibility of erecting a permanent historic interpretive marker to commemorate the role of the 50th Georgia on the 150th Anniversary of this battle. With the splendid cooperation of the Central Maryland Heritage League (property owners), the Living History Association of Mecklenburg, Inc. (Joint Participant), and the Georgia Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans (Marker Sponsor), the only historic battlefield marker specifically dedicated to the sacrifice of the men of the 50th Georgia will now become a reality. In addition to the 50th Georgia marker dedication, the Living History Association of Mecklenburg, Inc., will also dedicate a historic marker to honor the sacrifice of the 13th North Carolina Regiment at the battle. The dedication ceremonies will be jointly held on September 7. Although it may be a far distance for many, several descendants have expressed plans to attend the dedication ceremony in honor of their ancestors. The 50th Georgia dedication ceremony is not part of any other official 150th Anniversary activities planned by other groups. However, anyone interested in visiting the area during the week should book lodging in advance. There are two major reenactments occurring on Sat/Sun, September 8 & 9, and September 15 & 16, to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the Battles of South Mountain and Antietam (Sharpsburg to us Southerners). There are also other activities planned by the groups in the area. Fox's Gap was one of three battles that occurred on South Mountain the day of September 14, 1862. South Mountain is located near Boonsboro, MD. The largest city in the immediate area is probably Hagerstown. You may want to go to the following website: _www.marylandcampaign150.org_ (http://www.marylandcampaign150.org/) for information on activities and lodging in area. The bottom of the marker will read: "Dedicated by Descendants of the 50th Georgia Infantry Regiment, CSA Georgia Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans" Hope to see you there. Please feel free to pass along this information to others who might be interested in the 50th Georgia. Jim Parrish
