For almost 20 years we operated a Lovelock Mailing List, which was hosted for free on the RootsWeb server.
Ancestry, who had acquired the RootsWeb operation in 2000, announced on 7 January 2020 that all Rootsweb Mailing Lists would be terminated on 2 March 2020.
We therefore established a new, free, messaging
facility by creating a Group at 'groups.io', in common with
other operators of former RootsWeb Lists. This will allow
ongoing discussion of all matters of interest to Lovelock
- If you wish to join our new group go to lovelock group and then click on the '+ Join This Group' link at the bottom left. You will then need to enter your e-Mail address and click 'Submit'. In response you will receive an e-Mail inviting you to confirm and activate your membership.
- Alternatively you can send an empty message to email@example.com
and await a response.
Once you have joined you will be able to send
your messages to firstname.lastname@example.org. In all cases the
rules require that your first message will be moderated, so will
not be sent to the rest of the group immediately.
'RootsWeb' Mailing List Archives
In their message of 7 January 2020 Ancestry declared that after 2 March 2020 Mailing List Archives would remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. This link will take you to the archives, which are grouped according to year and month. The archives can be searched for particular names or topics, and begin in April 2000. Messages sent in December 2016 have apparently been lost by Ancestry, although they have never admitted as such, nor replied to any requests for restoration of those messages. We are of course unable to predict how long this archive facility will remain available.
