I am sad to say that having checked the URLs for Freepages, Homepages, and the WWW server <http://freepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/fileman/file_manager.cgi <http://freepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/fileman/file_manager.cgi>> <http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/fileman/file_manager.cgi <http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/fileman/file_manager.cgi>> <http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/fileman/file_manager.cgi <http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/fileman/file_manager.cgi>> she is correct and they all say they will be discontinued as of July 31st. What that means: If you do not have a copy of YOUR RootsWeb hosted site on YOUR computer as of July 31st, you will no longer be able to update your Freepages/Homepages/WWW site using File Manager. If you do not have an ftp client on your computer, you can download the free ftp client, Filezilla, at <https://filezilla-project.org/ <https://filezilla-project.org/>> For other free options, see Pat Geary's ftp page <http://www.genealogy-web-creations.com/publishing-with-ftp.htm <http://www.genealogy-web-creations.com/publishing-with-ftp.htm>> Please pass this important info on to all your CCs and fellow USGW members who may still be relying on the online File Manager that has been furnished by RootsWeb for so many years.
