    1. [SKATES] Notice about Rootsweb Lists
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. This has been received from the Rootsweb administration: "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." We are presently setting up email groups at https://groups.io/. If there is interest in migrating this list to groups.io please respond to this message to that effect ASAP. Please have patience about the creation of your group. The response has been tremendous and it is taking time to get them all set up. Also, creation of this group will depend upon your response to this missive. With heavy hearts, Jim and Di

    1. [SKATES] Help Keep This List Active
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. We just wanted to encourage you all to make use of this list in your family searches. A large number of Rootsweb lists have been made inactive due to no messages over a period of time. We want to keep as many lists active as we possibly can and your participation will help toward that goal. If you have a "brick wall" in your family search, send in a message to the list address with as much information as you have and let's see if someone may be able to help fill in those blanks. Best wishes, Jim and Di

    1. [SKATES] Skates, Montgomery, Down.
    2. thelma
    3. Dear Diane and Fellow Listers, We have been researching this name for over 25 years and have much to contribute. For anyone on this line out of Devon or surrounding counties, we have quite a few generations descending from Nathaniel Skates [Skeats]. I have long Word Documents which I am happy to post to any individual who requests same. We would love to make contact with someone from the line of Nathaniel, as it seems relevant to this region. It is not commonly used in most families. Many kind thanks for your interest.... Many kind thanks for your interesst and for those who might find a link... Sincerely in searching... Matthew and Thelma Birrell in Queensland Australia. Montgomery Skates Down : http://montgomery.50megs.com/index.htm You wrote, Hi there, Diane list admin here. Is there anyone on this list that need any help with research from anybody?

    1. [ADMIN] Caretaker - possibly List Owner - needed for this List.
    2. Vic Brocklehurst
    3. Hi Listers: Several months ago List Owner Diane asked that I caretake this List for her for an agreed period. This is the normal procedure when a List Owner (or Administrator if you prefer) is going to be off-line for more than a few days. Usually everything runs smoothly, and the List Owner returns as planned. In the meantime the Caretaker, having the List password, attends to any subscription or other problems on the List. Unfortunately Diana hasn't returned and attempts to contact her at her last known address have been unsuccessful. The time has now come to make fresh arrangements for administration of this List:. As a "stranger" I'm unable to do anything for the List beyond the "mechanics". I can't promote the List topic, or answer any queries! Is there anyone on the List who would be willing to Caretake on the understanding that if Diane does return she has prior claim to the List? If Diane does not return then you will probably inherit the List by default. No pay of course - it's all voluntary "work" done out of love for the hobby! If someone volunteers who hadn't managed a List before there's plenty of help available from Rootsweb, or I'll help if need be. Interested? Contact me at vb@kuchena.co.uk and be sure to put the name of the List in the subject. Diane had a lot of List's that I'm still caretaking and am now seeking to hand over! Vic List Caretaker. .

    3. Does anyone have a telephone number or a better e-mail address than diane@sowden8945.freeserve.co.uk for List Owner Diane Sowden? Mail sent to the address she was using in January is returned marked "Over quota". Please reply to me direct, not via the List. Vic List Caretaker.

    1. Re: [SKATES] Brickwall FANNY SKATES
    2. jstimson
    3. My brick wall is Fanny SKATES, b. GA abt. 1810 to 1825. She was said to have married John Kirkland. This information is on their daughter's death certificate. But, after five years of research I have yet to find Fanny and John together ANYWHERE. What was Fanny a nickname for? Besides Frances. The daughter was Mary Anna Kirland who married James W. Johnson. Thanks, Joyce

    1. Halloween
    2. Diane Sowden
    3. In the spirit of Halloween, from now through Oct. 31 please feel free to post any spooky tales related to your family research. Found a grave with the help of that ancestor? Tell us about it. Share a family tradition with us. What did your ancestor's do for a holiday? A special family recipe? Get your creative juices flowing and share with us today! It works every October and is fun for many list members who may have been afraid to post before. It tends to get them talking anyway! I set the time limit for this topic so that after Oct.31 we can get down to some really good researching... Diane (List mum)

    1. A website that you might be interested in
    2. Diane Sowden
    3. This is from your list mum, Diane FYI -- To those of you with England-based lists, I just ran across a resource which your lists might like to know about if they don't already. Harvard Law School has a collection of English deeds in their library, and these deeds are described on their website, including all names and locations contained therein: <http://www.law.harvard.edu/library/collections/special/collections/manuscri pts/deeds/> There is a small search box on the left-hand side at the bottom. If "HLS website" is clicked, then entering a search term in that box and clicking on "Go" will search those deeds for you (and probably any other pages on their site as well). Some of these deeds mention land in America, but most of them are for land in England. They go back as early as the 1300's and go through at least the latter 1700's. It doesn't appear to be possible to search on just the deeds, so a search on a common name like Lewis will get way too many hits. Adding the term "deed" to your search will help, but there may still be irrelevant results. The deed descriptions are also browseable in the event that the name search isn't fruitful. Please feel free to forward this message in whole or in part to your list(s) if desired. Diane
