    1. ([MIMANIST])Mailing lists on RootsWeb will be disabled in March 2020
    2. Aaron Hill
    3. I am not happy about this. I received the following message this morning. Please protest this short-sighted move, if you want. Perhaps if they hear from enough us, Ancestry will reverse course. Aaron J. Hill aaronjhill.wordpress.com From RootsWeb Administration <[email protected]> Tue 1/7/2020 9:36 AM 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. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team

    1. ([MIMANIST])Memorial Day
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Sorry to start another thread of messages so close to a Surname Shout Out but with the lists being down the first part of the year it threw my scheduling off. Hope you don't mind... With this being the Memorial Day Weekend, I thought it would it be interesting to post one ancestor we have in our family trees who served in one of the many wars and battles we fought in US History. Obviously it has to be an ancestor from this county. :) Give a brief biography of that person including the unit and war he or she was in, a POW, injuries, plus the usual genealogical stuff. Thanks in advance and have a safe weekend! Rick B Admin

    1. ([MIMANIST])Surname Shout Out
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to "celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out. A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor we're totally stumped on. Happy Hunting! Rick B Admin

    1. [MIMANIST] CARTIER - AYERS Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Rose CARTIER which was taken in 1883 at the J. G. Hill Studio in Monroe, MI. Rose appears to be in her 20's at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Rose and her family: Rosalia "Rose" or "Rosa" CARTIER was b. 31 Mar 1861 in Ludington or Manistee, MI to parents Antoine Ephraim or Ephrem CARTIER (1836-1910) and Elizabeth Ann E. "Eliza" AYERS (1842-1920). Rose was one of 9 children born to this couple including, Rose; Louis A.; Warren Antoine; Ida Jane; George Robinson; Dezera or Desire or Desera Ephraim; William; Charles Earnest; and Eliza CARTIER, all born between 1861 and 1891. Rose married Charles W. SOPER (b. 1860) and they had a son, George W. A. SOPER (1887-1897). I am hoping to locate someone from Rose's family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
