    1. [GROOVER] 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. [GROOVER] 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. [GROOVER] 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. [GROOVER] 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.

    3. Hello folks, and welcome back to RootsWeb's newly upgraded list system. If you are receiving this post it is because you are still a subscriber to this list, even though things have been pretty quiet due to a number of issues lately. The lists are back now, and I believe you will like the improvements that have been made.

Like anything new there will be something of a learning curve in the beginning, but I really think you will like it for the new security and personalization features for your list subscriptions. And last but not least, please note my email address as List Owner immediately below this message and following my name. Also note the "List information" link below that, which will take you to the information page for this list, where you will find information to help you subscribe, unsubscribe, and some other things based on the current status of your new log in account. I welcome you back to the list, and look forward to working with you in the future tracking down our elusive ancestors.

    3. Oh I am so sorry to hear this. Delilah was so wonderful to me and such a great help. I have Evans ancestors, but we never found a connection between our families. Still she was willing to help me with my research. She even ordered a large picture of the grave where my Grand uncle was buried in France during WWI and then she sent it to me. When I offered to pay, she said no, he had done enough for our country and she wanted to honor him. What a lady!!! Thank you for sharing this.

This means that email address was not able to be delivered to. This leads me to the assumption that Elly is no longer interested in genealogy, has changed her email address and not updated with mailing list or worse case scenario she is no longer able to do genealogy. Her snail mail address and telephone were on a post I copied from mailing list dealing with GROOVER Family Reunion in Alabama from 2011. Have not had the heart to pick up the phone to do further investigation. Since the message board is linked with the mailing list, it is my hope that someone might have knowledge and share. Anyway, I am here if you need further lookups. I have in my possession Elly's book _Groover Family Tree_ and Lovell and Manley's book _Groover Family History_ published in 1981. It is my hope to start posting excerpts from these books to my blog. My wish list is to find the other book mentioned on this board and add to collection. Happy Hunting!

On page 8 is the following paragraph and I quote: Peter and Susanna probably had more than eight children. Some of therm for one reason or another decided not to make the move to Georgia with their father. There are no stories passed down about brothers or sisters who remained in North Carolina. George Croover is a son of Peter's who did not accompany his family to Georgia. On 17 November 1810, George married Jeanie Scott in Orange County, North Carolina. The bondsman was John Scott, possibly Jeanie's father or an older brother. In 1820, the couple had a son named John who in the early 1830's moved to Georgia and settled in Coweta County. In 1864, John Cruver, in his last will and testament left all his land to his uncle Philip Groover of Alabama. Another one of Peter and Susanna's children was a daughter named Elizabeth Gruber who was married to Jacob Neese Sr. and lived in North Carolina.

Author: GROOVER_Historian Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.groover/177/mb.ashx Message Board Post: This post was copied from GROOVER-L archives at RootsWeb. It is from 2011 GROOVER FAMILY REUNION Announcing the 28th Annual Groover Reunion SATURDAY, JUNE 11, 2011 At Antioch Methodist Church, Abernathy, Alabama The descendants of Peter Groover, a soldier of the American Revolution, who was born about 1762 in Germany and died in 1841 at Marietta, Georgia, are meeting again. Our family reunion will be held at the Antioch Methodist Church in Abernathy, AL, a church that was built by Rev. William Leander Groover. Make plans to attend and enjoy our program. This is a great opportunity to meet and visit with many of those relatives you might never have had the chance to get to know otherwise. Let's make this day truly memorable. Bring "Show and Tell" items, keepsakes or photographs that belonged to your Groover grand and great grandparents. Let us know of new additions to your family, or of the death of loved ones. Turn in those dates to the person at the sign in table. Don't forget to register at that time for our drawing. Directions: Abernathy, AL., is located just off Interstate 20. Take the Ranburne/Muscadine exit (#210). This is the first exit inside Alabama. Turn towards Ranburne and the church will be 1.3 miles on the right. Time: Plan on arriving about 11:00 A.M. (Central Time) so you can examine the displays. The program will start at 1:00 P.M. Lunch: The Church has a new air-conditioned Annex with kitchen and bathroom facilities. We will eat about noon. Bring food and drink for your family and then share off the community table. Two family histories, "The Groover Family Tree" and "Ancestors and Descendants of Margaret Lenora Reid, wife of William Kirby Groover," will be available at the reunion. Family history will be uppermost in our minds on this day. Spread the word throughout your immediate family. Come and enjoy the day with us.
