    3. Hello, folks, within the next few days, RootsWeb will be changing its mail list software from "Smartlist" to "Mailman". (The software used by the Boards will also be changing but THIS notice deals with the change in List software only.) You can access a software migration schedule that will tell you when to expect this list to be migrated at: If you have any questions pertaining to the migration schedule, you can contact me at the admin address for this list: mailto:[INSERTLISTNAME][email protected] . How will this change in maillist software affect you as a user? The plan is "Not Much", but there are a number of changes of which you should be aware: 1. Most importantly, the distinction between "list" mode and "digest" mode will change such that users can only access one of these two modes using a single e-mail address. If you wish to subscribe to both modes, you must do so using two different addresses. 2. As a result, the "list" mode will no longer require the "-L" for subscriptions, unsubscriptions, and to send mail to the list. You will still be able to send messages to the list using the mailto:[INSERTLISTNAME][email protected] address you use now OR you can choose to drop the "-L" and send your messages to mailto:[INSERTLISTNAME] . Both addresses will work after the list has been migrated. (The "-D" will still be required for all "digest" mode actions.) 3. The deletion of the "-L" for "list" mode mail means that some of you will have to do some tweaking to your mail filters, but this should not be too onerous a task. 4. Unlike Smartlist, Mailman is more restrictive in respect of subscribes and unsubscribes. To subscribe or unsubscribe, the word SUBSCRIBE or UNSUBSCRIBE MUST now be in the Subject line of the e-mail ... just putting it in the text will be insufficient. On the plus side, there will be a "NO MAIL" mode now! 5. There will also be changes to the way in which (a) bounces, and (b) e-mail address on the "Reject" list are handled ... for example, List Admins. now won't be notified of any bounce until the bounce threshold for the list has been met, at which time the address(es) will be automatically unsubbed. This will take me some getting used to because I won't see from post to post who's bouncing, or why ... Why change at all? The "why" is that Smartlist, the software that is currently used for Rootsweb's lists is not only no longer supported but is held together with generations of bailing wire and bubble gum. The choice to migrate to new software was really no longer a choice, but a necessity if we are to continue to enjoy the ease of doing genealogy via our email in boxes. Take a deep breath. Count to ten. Do not panic. The tutorial (YES, there will be a tutorial available!) is very user-friendly. The software is easy to use. It will take a wee bit of getting accustomed to and life with it will be a bit different. There is also a new list for anyone to ask questions, seek advice, etc., on the new maillist software, and has been designed for list subscribers to discuss the updates and get/give peer assistance in adjusting e-mail filters, etc.: [email protected] (NOTE: No "-L"!! ... subscribe at mailto:[email protected] OR at mailto:[email protected] ). No doubt there will be other things that arise from time to time as well. As we enter this brave new world, pls contact me at the above admin address with any questions ... as usual, I'll try to assist as quickly as possible! Thanks, and continued good hunting! Peter Wyant List Admin.

    1. Descendants of Guillaume Simon
    2. Morris Simon
    3. My SIMON interests in Louisiana are in the descendants of merchant seaman Guillaume Simon and his wife Marie Jeanne Roy of the German Coast. Their sons Louis and Michel were among the first settlers and farmers in St. James Parish and their descendants were concentrated in the German-Acadian Coast parishes. If you are connected to these Simons, please let me know. Morris Simon

    1. ADMIN. POST - Difficulty in Receiving RootsWeb List Mail
    2. P. S. Wyant
    3. Hello, folks, I'm writing this to advise you of certain difficulties RootsWeb has had over the past couple of weeks in delivering mail to certain of its lists. In the most recent occurrence, the problem appears to be affecting lists that are on RootsWeb "lists5" server only. This list is on that server, hence this post. Briefly, the problem is that a number of smaller ISPs make use of various commercial services in an effort to control spam. One of those services is SpamCop ... you can find the SpamCop home page at: . Unfortunately, this particular spam control service doesn't really care very much about the accuracy of its protective services. The RootsWeb "lists5" server has been "blacklisted" by SpamCop three times over the past two weeks and each time, any ISP that uses this commercial service has rejected all legitimate list mail that it has received from RootsWeb for delivery. The result has been that significant volumes of legitimate list mail have been undelivered over this period and many subscribers have been bounced off their lists. If you're wondering if the list has been quieter than usual the past few days, this is likely the reason. There is more information on this current issue available in the yellow box at: . RootsWeb has done all it can to resolve the issue. They suggest that one thing that subscribers can do is to contact their ISP and request that RootsWeb list mail be "whitelisted", meaning that it will be delivered and the SpamCop settings will be ignored. Happy to respond to any subscribers' questions on this, of course ... pls contact me OFF-LIST at: [listname][email protected] Regards, Peter Wyant List Admin.

    1. ADMIN. POST - RootsWeb's Mail Servers to be Off-Line
    2. P. S. Wyant
    3. Folks, RootsWeb's mail servers are being located overnight, Wed to Thu this week, so most of RootsWeb's services, including the HelpDesk, will be down/stopped/off-line during the relocation. RootsWeb's Message Boards <> and World Connect <> will be available as they have already been relocated. E-mail bound for RootsWeb should be held by your ISP automatically until the servers are back on-line and ready to receive e-mail again. If an e-mail does bounce back to you, please hold off re-sending it for a period of six hours. The time scheduled for the servers to be off is Thu, 19 Jan, from midnight until 6 a.m. in Utah (MST). This translates to the starting time in the USA & Canada of Thu, 2 a.m. (EST), 1 a.m. (CST), Wed, 11 p.m. (PST), etc. In the U.K., it's 7 a.m. (GMT); in NZ, 8 p.m. ; in Aus, 6 p.m. (AEDT), all on Thu. There is an associated issue ... As part of the server relocation, there is a "high possibility" that some/all of the servers will be getting new IP addresses. The potential problem is that if particular ISPs have whitelisted current RootsWeb IP addresses, the new addresses might very well be blacklisted unless/until RootsWeb can contact the relevant ISPs to allow mail through unimpeded. RootsWeb and I will be watching for this eventuality on this list ... some patience on your part might be required! Thanks ... any comments to me off-list, please ... Peter List Admin.

    3. Greetings to all you SIMON and SIMON-LA listers. Both of these lists have been dormant for a long time. I've been busier than usual with my real job and have not had time to keep the fires going, but perhaps I can be more active during the summer months. It might help if you will reply with names, brick walls, lookup requests, and URL suggestions. I have just uploaded a fairly large GEDCOM to Rootsweb which has quite a few Louisiana SIMON names, all of which are descended from Guillaume SIMON, a merchant seaman born in 1744 in Bordeaux, France, and his wife, Marie Jeanne Roy. You can browse the GEDCOM at: Let me know if you find a link. I also urge each of you with personal GEDCOM files to submit them to the WorldConnect project at Rootsweb. Just go to the main Rootsweb page ( and follow the links. I hope we can make these lists work for you. Morris <[email protected]> or ([email protected]>
