Hello all, Migration of this list to the new list management system was postponed because of delivery problems with AOL that developed after the A-C lists migrated to the new system. Rootsweb has put the D-Z migration on hold until this problem with AOL is resolved. You can read all about here: http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ AOL users can find additional information about this by subscribing to the support group AOLers-RootsWeb Mailing List or simply reading through the list archives. http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/other/RootsWeb_Support/AOLers-RootsWeb.html I will no longer pester you with updates because if interested you can use this link http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ for updates or email me privately off the list at email@example.com. Thanks for your patience. Joan List Admin
Hello all, As you probably already know the mailing lists are being moved to a new list management system. This list is scheduled to be migrated on Thursday, August 24 For anyone interested the schedule and additional information may be found http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/migrate_sched.html Once this list is moved to the new service it should not present any problems but you should be aware that you may need to adjust your spam filters. Officially from rootsweb: <snip> The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. This means the "from" address your mailing list emails come from will be slightly different- ListName@rootsweb.com vs. the current ListName-L@rootsweb.com. You may have to adjust your spam filters or put the new address on your "accept" list to prevent it from being caught in your "junk" folder. <snip> You will be able to send mail with or without the "-L" AOL users have reported some problems with receiving mail in a timely matter and you can find additional information about this by subscribing to the support group AOLers-RootsWeb Mailing List or simply reading through the list archives. http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/other/RootsWeb_Support/AOLers-RootsWeb.html ALSO: subscribers who subscribe in both the list and digest modes using the same email address will no longer be able to do so. You may still subscribe to both but you will need to use two email address. You can always use a free Internet account such as hotmail, yahoo or gmail. I have a few gmail invites left for anyone who would like one. Any questions just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

My big genealogical quest for the time being is the origins of James H. Todd, who settled on Mossy Creek, Augusta County, Virginia. It's at James where my line disappears into oblivion, leaving several questions: >From whom did James receive his parcel of land in Augusta County? What other families came to the area with him, and through what route? Were the Howards and Prestons one of those families? James's sons, Nathaniel and George, are rumoured to have hunted with the Boones in Kentucky. Are any of the branches of Todds that later show up there connected with this line? James was almost certainly Scots-Irish and Presbyterian. He's noted as being active in the Mossy Creek Presbyterian Church, and one of its founding members. Were there any other family members that made the crossing with James, and is it possible that he came over indentured? See? Lots of questions, precious few answers. What I do know: James arrived in the Mossy Creek area sometime in the late 1780s, probably shortly after the Revolution, which he served in. I haven't narrowed down which unit quite yet, but he was a private in the Continental Troops, and possibly a scout. By June of 1790 he's listed as a taxpayer in the area. James H. Todd died shortly before Christmas, 1799. His wife Jane signed over her rights as executrix of the will in favor of her son, George. Which is truly interesting, considering George is estimated to have been about ten years old at the time. Many of the Todds stayed in the Augusta County area, later spreading out to several counties in what would later become West Virginia. Anyway...there's my big search in the mountains. Anyone else have a story to tell? Melissa Strobel list-admin

Yes, I know. A lot of people hate them. To minimize the chaos, I'm going to assert the usual rules: 1. This will only be going on for three days, starting today (Tuesday). Roll call will end on Friday, but subsequent posts stemming from them may continue. 2. Start your own thread, preferably with the words ROLL CALL on the topic, plus any topics or surnames you are researching. This helps the other listers sort through messages. 3. Don't like roll calls? Please do not post stating such, and if you really feel it necessary to comment, shoot me a message through the admin address or my own. The archives don't need to record for posterity why people don't like them. 4. If you don't want to exercise your delete key for the next few days, unsubbing until Friday may be a viable option to you. The storm should have passed by then. 5. Please be considerate of the digest listers and only quote necessary details in your replies. This way they can keep up with the topics and not have to slog through repetitive copies of the same text. That said, let's get this ball rolling! I'll be posting my own interests here shortly.
