    3. I'm active on Facebook and it would be much simpler to have them there rather than another set of mailing lists.

    2. Pat Connors
    3. Let us all remember, you are not 'moving' the group but starting a new group on Facebook.  This mailing list and all the other Rootsweb mailing lists will be alive till March 2nd.  We have another 2 months.  So, as the list owner, I want you to take all talk of moving the list to your own personal emails and not on the list. Those of you setting up other lists can email subbers */off/* the list or wait til March 1st to announce your new lists. -- Pat Connors http://www.connorsgenealogy.com

    1. [NY-IRISH] Rootsweb mailing lists
    2. Pat Connors
    3. As many of you probably know, the Rootsweb lists will cease to exist starting March 2nd. Over the holidays I obtained cds that cover the following NY records: Passenger & Immigration Index, 1538-1940 Social Security Death Index, 1937-1997 NYC Marriage Index, 1600s-1800s I plan to transcribe these records and get them on my website for free access.  I normally announce on the various Rootsweb lists when I put new records online but with Rootsweb now going away, I will no longer be able to let anyone know when I get the new data online. So, I if you are interested in getting on my announcement list to get an email whenever I add new data to my website and/or surname registries, just email me off the list and I will will add you to my mailing list. It is so sad to see the passing of Rootsweb, I have been on Rootsweb since day one (early 1900s) when it cost us $40 to obtain a mailing list.  In those days, genealogy records were hard to find and those wonderful posters helped us newbies find the way to our ancestors. -- Pat Connors http://www.connorsgenealogy.com

    1. [NY-IRISH] [EXTERNAL] New records online and free to access
    2. Pat Connors
    3. Thanks to Genealogy In time online Magazine for this list of genealogy records online and free to access: *Ireland* – FamilySearch has added another 900,000 records to their Ireland 1901 census record collection. This is a very important collection for anyone with Irish ancestors since it is only one of two full censuses for Ireland that has survived. A typical record in this collection lists the name, age, occupation, relationship to the head of the household, marital status, education/literacy, religion and birth country for all the members of the household. This collection can be searched by first name and last name. Access is free. [Ireland 1901 Census Records] https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1626180 *Ireland* – The Irish Genealogical Research Society has added 14,000 more names to their early Irish birth, marriage and death indexes. This brings the total name count for the three indexes to 274,000. The marriage index is free to search. You can read more about this latest update at Irish Ancestors. https://www.irishancestors.ie/weve-added-14000-more-names-to-our-bmd-database/ *Ireland* – FamilySearch has increased their collection of Irish civil registration records by an additional one million records. These are primarily birth (1864 to 1913), marriage (1845 to 1870) and death (1864 to 1870) records issued by the Irish government. A typical birth record in this collection lists the name of the child, date and place of birth, full name and address of the father, profession of the father and full name (including maiden name) and address of the mother. A typical marriage record in this collection includes the full names of the bride and groom, their ages, date and place of marriage, occupations of the both the bride and groom, their signatures and witnesses to the marriage (who were often close relatives). A typical death record in this collection includes the full name of the deceased, date and place of death, sex, age, marital status, occupation and certified cause of death (if known). These records can be searched by first name and last name. Sadly, most of the records in this collection do not show images of the original record. Access is free.
