Mailing Lists and Message Boards

Blogs and Social Media have attracted many former users of the original Rootsweb Mailing Lists and Message Boards.

Rootsweb Mailing List

In January 2020 Rootsweb posted this message:

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.

Google Groups Replacement

In response to the announcement above, on January 20, 2020, the current Rootsweb admin started the Allen County, Indiana Genealogy Group a Google group. This group overs many features the Rootsweb mailling list did not offer. These features are: Messages, Hashtags, New Topic, New Poll, Chats, Directory, Calendar, Photos, Files, Databases, and Wiki.

The Rootsweb Mailing List is an email subscription list for Allen County, Indiana related genealogical discussions at All of Rootsweb was revised starting in 2018 so some older functions may be missing and links may no longer work. You can Browse the INAllen Mailing List Archives back to January 1998.

This Mailing List is different from the ACGSI Queries Page which posts Queries to the ACGSI site with a Searchable Index or the Rootsweb Message Board which is a searchable Rootsweb site. We suggest you use all available resources for researching Allen County, Indiana relatives.

You can Subscribe to the INAllen Rootsweb Mailing List.

Rootsweb Message Board

The Allen Rootsweb Message Board postings are searchable.

Some Rootsweb Mailing Lists and Message Boards are one and the same. For whatever reason our Rootsweb Allen County, Indiana Mailing List and Message Board are separate lists so it is useful to subscribe to the list and periodically search the Message Board so you don't miss anything related to your families.
