    1. [NZ-MILITARY] New group set up to replace this Rootsweb one - NZ MILITARY
    2. Wendy Howard
    3. Following feedback from my previous posts (see below), I have set up a new group at groups.io to replace this Rootsweb list which will be disappearing soon. You will find the new group here - https://groups.io/g/nz-military If you want to join the new group, please go and do so, and participate in discussions there. I look forward to seeing you there. :-) Wendy Rootsweb list admin/owner ---------- Forwarded message --------- From: Wendy Howard <wendy.howard@gmail.com> Date: Sun, Feb 23, 2020 at 4:20 PM Subject: Last chance if you want this mailing list to continue at another site To: <garvin@rootsweb.com> The Rootsweb mailing lists will cease to function in about a week's time. If this is news to you, please read the older emails I've copied below. I've not had feedback from this list that anyone wants it to continue. You've had time to think about it now - would you like to see it continue elsewhere? Reply and let me know if you do, and I will set up a new group at groups.io - I've already done this for the groups that have responded positively. Wendy Howard List Owner/Admin ---------- Forwarded message --------- From: Wendy Howard <wendy.howard@gmail.com> Date: Sun, Jan 12, 2020 at 2:04 PM Subject: The future/fate of RootsWeb Mailing Lists You are receiving this email because you are subscribed to a Rootsweb mailing list that I administer. As you can see below, the mailing lists at Rootsweb are going to cease functioning soon. If you would like to continue being a member of some sort of group on the topic of this list, please post back to the list where you're seeing this and say so. This list is extremely quiet and rarely sees any activity. Is there any point in continuing? Have you found a better place to exchange information that you can recommend to the other members of this list? - post and tell us about it if you have. If you feel there is still a need for something, no other suggestions are put forward, and you are prepared to participate as a member, I'm willing to make an effort to create a new forum in a suitable place. I'm not going to do all the work and have not activity from its members, so do think about it before replying. Suitable places include Google Groups (which act like mailing lists and message boards combined, and you don't have to have a Google account to be there, but it helps), and Facebook. If you have another suggestion, please let me know. Please take care to ensure any replies are sent to the mailing list, not to me personally, unless there is an administrative issue you wish to raise with me. It would be nice if the list went out with a flurry of activity as we all share our latest discoveries before it is turned off. Wendy ---------- Forwarded message --------- From: RootsWeb Administration <rwmailinglists@ancestry.com> Date: Wed, Jan 8, 2020 at 6:36 AM Subject: [ROOT-LO-ANNOUN] RootsWeb Mailing Lists To: <rootsweb-listowners-announcements@rootsweb.com> 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

The feedback I've had since I posted about the lists closing in January was that for the most part people who wanted to continue seemed happy to join the group that Hugh had set up for New Zealand genealogy ( https://groups.io/g/newzealand) and that separate lists for variations on that theme weren't needed.

    1. [NZ-MILITARY] The future/fate of RootsWeb Mailing Lists
    2. Wendy Howard
    3. You are receiving this email because you are subscribed to a Rootsweb mailing list that I administer. As you can see below, the mailing lists at Rootsweb are going to cease functioning soon. If you would like to continue being a member of some sort of group on the topic of this list, please post back to the list where you're seeing this and say so. This list is extremely quiet and rarely sees any activity. Is there any point in continuing? Have you found a better place to exchange information that you can recommend to the other members of this list? - post and tell us about it if you have. If you feel there is still a need for something, no other suggestions are put forward, and you are prepared to participate as a member, I'm willing to make an effort to create a new forum in a suitable place. I'm not going to do all the work and have not activity from its members, so do think about it before replying. Suitable places include Google Groups (which act like mailing lists and message boards combined, and you don't have to have a Google account to be there, but it helps), and Facebook. If you have another suggestion, please let me know. Please take care to ensure any replies are sent to the mailing list, not to me personally, unless there is an administrative issue you wish to raise with me. It would be nice if the list went out with a flurry of activity as we all share our latest discoveries before it is turned off.

    2. John Wilson
    3. Hi Wally: You do not say whether this is a general inquiry or whether you are looking for a particular person. Only Archives NZ has files online, and they are mainly WWI or Boer War personnel, though some WWI soldiers did have postwar and WWII eg Home Guard service as well. The Archives NZ main series are 18805 plus 22525 for nurses and those in other forces (generally Boer War and WWI) and 7291 for the permanent forces and territorials. Look (advanced search) at series 7291 for 1920 to 1939 and there are a number of digitised files for individuals but some are quite brief and you would have to ask the NZDF Archives for a copy of his full file. Anyone can ask for a copy of a file for a deceased soldier, but I suppose the staff have to assume that some people from the 1930s and 1940s could still be alive!

    2. John Wilson
    3. Hi Chris: Re the No 2 New Zealand General Hospital at Walton-on-Thames, some of the nurses there will have files online at Archives New Zealand. Go to Advanced Search then Records and put Walton into the “keywords” and 22525 into the series. You should get seven names who served there. https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ https://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/CallItemAdvancedSearch.do Generally NZEF soldiers are in series 18805 and they have all been digitised and online. 22525 has papers relating to nurses and VADs plus men who served in Australian , British or other forces , including the RFC, RAF & RN or RNVR. They do not have full personnel files like the NZEF; often an enquiry from someone in NZ to the NZ Army or minister about someone serving in other forces. Or someone who wanted their medals, or wanted the extra pay the NZ government would pay to those paid at the lower British pay rates.

    3. Well done Wendy.. If anyone not only in New Zealand, has an ancestor who died at Featherston Camp WW1 and is buried there, please get in touch with the researcher.. (me) I have been trying for years to find family of the soldiers buried at Featherston, find out about their back ground history. Influenza in 1918 took so many soldiers, 150 are buried at Featherston that died of that outbreak, some buried at Karori Cemetery in Wellington. On the Cenotaph site with Auckland War Memorial Museum, the soldiers that are buried at Featherston, the headstones are with the names on Cenotaph. Look forward to hearing from you thank you. Hope to do a Cemetery tour in November, mark the 100 years since the soldiers died, but can visit the cemetery if necessary, missed Anzac Day this year, due to illness..
