    1. [GAHART] new list home - GA-HART
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Hart county list has been set up. Later today, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list. 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. Tim Stowell list admin

    1. [GAHART] status of the Hart count list 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of today, the Hart county list has 66 subscribers. With the ending of this list on 3/2, a new list home has been created. I'll send another note on this shortly. 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 but have traveled to or through most of our state's counties 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. Seeing the continuing value of having mailing lists, I'm currently working with approximately 130 mailing lists based on either location or particular surnames - most of which are somewhere in my tree.

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. [GAHART] 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. [GAHART] 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. [GAHART] Unsubscribing from Mailing List(s)
    2. Susan Penn Groover
    3. /_*Unsubscribing from Mailing List(s)*_/ With the upcoming changes to Roots Web, some have decided to “leave early.” Which I personally understand. Since I am busy, I would like to ask for your help. Should you make the decision to close your membership to list please do the following: Insert or substitute listname before dash. To unsubscribe from the list, please send an email to listname-request@rootsweb.com <mailto:wvlogan-request@rootsweb.com> with the word "unsubscribe" without the quotes in the subject and the body of the email with no additional text.

    1. [GAHART] 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. [GAHART] 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...

    1. [GAHART] Joel Towers
    2. Vance Harris
    3. I am looking for information on Joel Towers. I have only found him in one census anywhere. He appears in the 1860 Hart County Georgia Census aged 30, born in Georgia. His wife's name as Alice aged 30 born on board the ship Juliet. They also have a daughter Susan S. Towers aged 8 born in South Carolina. I have not found any of this family after 1860. Joel was a confederate soldier. His service record seems to suggest that he was captured although it doesn't say when or where captured. Joel's occupation is listed as Lawyer. He is listed between the households of William B. Johnson and Drury Whillock in Dooly's District. He Post office is listed as Oak Bourne??? He is listed as being Paroled at Talladega Alabama in May of 1865. I would greatly appreciate any information. Vance C. Harris

    1. Re: [GAHART] GAHART Digest, Vol 9, Issue 1
    2. Vance Harris
    3. Thank you for the information. I have not really started looking for these men in great detail. I am still in the process of going through the roster and trying to figure out where each man was from. Once I am done with that, I will look into Pension records. I tried going to the Hart Co. Historical Society website before I posted on here but My antivirus program warned me that the website had a Trojan and blocked me from loading the webpage. I am not sure if this was a false positive or if someone has hacked the website. I was hoping that a member of the historical society might be active on this mailing list. I have found the burial locations of most of the men on the list with the only exceptions being Joel Towers, John W. Rumsey, and Henry C. Stalnaker which you have now found for me. Angus Loflin McCurry is buried in Sardis Baptist Church Cemetery in Hart County. Fransis Marion Shiflet is buried in New Harmony Cemetery in Hart Co. Ga. James Shiflet is buried in White Cemetery in Hart Co. Ga. David Haslett Vernon is buried in Mount Olivet Baptist Church in Hart Co. Ga. Other members I have recently found who may be from Hart County as well are Joseph Rumsey Mathew J. Rumsey Just based on the fact that I have never seen the name Rumsey before and there were three of them in this company. I'll check in Elbert Co. for them as well. Vance C.

    1. [GAHART] Hart County Citizens in the 4th Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters
    2. Vance Harris
    3. Hello, I currently conducting research for a book I am writing on 4th Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters. As I have researched, I have noticed that quit a few members of Company C were from Hart County and were originally members of Company A, 9th Battalion Georgia Infantry. I have been compiling a list although I am sure it is not complete. The Hart County Citizens that I have found so far are: Angus L. McCurry John W. Rumsey Francis M. Shiflet James Shiflet Henry C. Stalnaker Joel Towers David H. Vernon I am looking for photographs of these men to include in my book. I want to gather as many photographs of these soldiers as possible. I would also be interested in any letters or diaries that might still exist that were written by any of these men. There is a possibility that i have missed some so I am interested in the same for any member of this Battalion. I would also be interested to learn the burial locations of these men. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Vance C. Harris

    3. With the help of Jackie Whitten, she showed me that Rose Hill Cemetery in Royston, GA is half in Franklin Co and half in Hart Co. I had thought it was partly in Madison co but she showed me where it is not. Madison Co just barely on the edge of Royston city limits but Hart County comes alway into the cemetery. David S.

    3. Valarie, I can't find a cemetery called Royston Cemetery in Royston, GA. I am assuming you mean Rose Hill Cemetery? I also checked the Hart Co. Cemetery book and there is not a listing for Rose Hill cemetery but it is listed in the Franklin Co. GA history book as Rose Hill as the Royston City cemetery. From all the maps I have and also Google maps, Rose Hill Cemetery  in Franklin Co. and Madison Co. I also checked a Topo map of Royston and Rose Hill Cemetery is half in Franklin and half in Madison County. I checked some other maps and I don't think any of the cemetery is in Hart Co but I really can't tell for sure. David S.
