    3. Hi All Ancestry has announced they are shutting down the entire Rootsweb community as of 3/2/20.  They are making some arrangement to store archived items, but no new postings.  Rootsweb has never been the friendliest of web sites.   They wouldn't accept posting of pictures, spreadsheets, etc.  They also had problems with any user having an AOL email.  First, is there any interest in keeping a message board going for your surname?  Please send me an e-mail if you're still interested. I'm looking at several alternatives to Rootsweb.  My Heritage and FamilySearch both offer sites, but are tied to their parent company like Rootsweb is to Ancestry.  Groups.io appears to be a free alternative.  They do offer a paid subscription which may or may not be of interest at a later date. An excellent article on the subject can be found on the Eastman website:  https://blog.eogn.com/2020/01/10/groups-io-the-do-it-yourself-replacement-for-disappearing-message-boards-and-mailing-lists/ Please provide feedback on this issue, sooner rather than later.

    3. Hi Sharon and All Woodworth Relatives, I’m a recent addition to this list. I’m very interested in my Woodworth family connections. What little I have, I would really hate to lose. I will follow as best I can whichever format is chosen. I LOVE the Woodworth Facebook page. Is their some Facebook product that would serve the same function as the RootsWeb product?
