    1. [KSWILSON] new list home is ready
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. The new home for the Wilson 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/KS-WILSON and select Join Group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1.

    1. [KSWILSON] Status of the Wilson county mailing list - 2020
    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. As of now, the Wilson county mailing list has 33 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 Rootsweb lists that will be going defunct next month. In my next email, I'll send you further information regarding this and how to join the new home for this list. Tim Stowell Chattanooga

    1. [KSWILSON] 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.

    1. [KSWILSON] 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. [KSWILSON] 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

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.

VA married to Sydney is the end of the line as far back as I can trace it. Does your Bible have any more info on sibs of Thomas or maiden name for Sidney? Can you give me more information, please? I'd really love to find out more about Thomas and Sydney, but I am interested in this line. The DFW tree on ancestry.com is mine and my husband is David Wilson, his father Robert Wilson. His father did dna testing. My email address is katyZKLBW@gmail.com and I'd love to find out more. Thanks for responding.

    1. [KSWILSON] Reverend Thomas Carl DARNELL
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi I'm doing research into Reverend Thomas C. DARNELL. He was practising/living in Pleasant Valley, Wilson County a part of the Christian Church in Eastern Kansas. We have found him in one report from the Herald of Gospel Liberty in September 22, 1909 Kansas He died 26th Aug 1928 in Washington State and is buried in the Woodbine Cemetery in Puyallup. There is no obituary in Washington for him. I believe he was born in Iowa in 1842 the son of Enos Darnell/Darnall and Elizabeth Berry Brown. Thomas was married to Sarah Jane Lowe and one of their children is Susan Frances Darnell HOOBER who died 5th March 1978 in Sumner Pierce county WA. She is also buried in Woodbine. I would like to find any information on him please. Kind regards Dianna from Australia

Marriage records have been filed with this office since May 1, 1913. By state law, vital records filed with this office are not open for public inspection and the requestor must meet certain eligibility requirements; which is -- must be named on the record, an immediate family member, or someone who can legally prove the record is necessary for the determination of personal or property rights. We allow post 1940 records to be requested by parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Pre-1940 records must be requested by someone with the relationship of at least a cousin. A request without an exact date can be made if enough other information is provided and the name is not a particularly common one (i.e. "John Smith"). By law, the initial $15.00 fee is a five-year record search fee -- one certified copy is issued if the record is found and if not found, the fee is retained. Up to a five-year span can be searched for the $15.00 fee, but it does help to have the date narrowed down as much as possible.

    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: Tim_Cattron Surnames: Fender, Snavely, Lambert, Cattron Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.kansas.counties.wilson/581/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Looking for residence, marriage and death information for Minnie Jane FENDER and Nannie Caroline FENDER. Minnie was born 27 June 1876, Virginia. Nannie was born 1879, Virginia. Birth parents were Kenley Ballard LAMBERT and Frances (Fanny) Elizabeth LAMBERT nee Snavely. Ballard and Frances divorced and Elizabeth then married John Henry FENDER Jr. in Wilson County, Kansas. The 1895 Kansas state census shows both Minnie and Nannie (as Vadie) living with J.H. and Frances Fender in Neodesha, Wilson County, Kansas. The 1900 U. S. Census shows Minnie living with Henry and Frances Fender (step daughter to head of house) in Neodesha, Wilson County, Kansas. This census does not show Nannie with the family. Minnie and Nannie are my grand aunts and I do not know what happened to them after their move to Neodesha. They are half-sisters of my grandfather, Carl Elmer LAMBERT, aka CATTRON.
