PRA's RootsWeb Mailing List is Going Away!


RootsWeb Mail list is no longer available for posting or reading new messages.  The PRA mailing archives are still available if you want to search them.

I have learned that our unique mailing list hosted by RootsWeb (owned by has been archived and is no longer allowing new messages to be posted to it nor is it sending messages to the list subscribers.

Several of the other RootsWeb mailing lists that I subscribe to have been sending me messages that their lists are now being closed as well.

So we have a few options.  For now, I encourage everyone to:

Use the PRA's Facebook page for monitoring our activities and posting new messages.  Our Facebook page is found at:
We also monitor new messages and post messages on our public blog at:
You can also post messages to our Members-Only blog on our website.  Go to and login.  Then go to:
If you have any research or general questions for the PRA, please send them to me at

Thank you for all your support and help!
