Mailing list down again

It is disappointing and frustrating that RootsWeb/Ancestry mailing lists, including the Sackett list, are again out of action.

Latest information (25 January 2018) is that the system will be offline for a few weeks while they upgrade the Mailman software.

  1. Yes, the mail list was taken ofline after Ancestry staff researched a security issue. You can see the advisory which describes the password-related problems at https://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2017/12/23/rootsweb-security-update/

    Meanwhile, there is a web-only version of Sackett-related messages at https://www.ancestry.com/boards/surnames.sackett/mb.ashx . I encourage mail list users to continue sharing information there, at least until the mail list returns.
