In November of 2017, Ancestry dumped 25 years of genealogy materials accumulated by the Rootsweb volunteers. Over the past 8 months we have monitored their blogs as they promised repeatedly that the data would be restored. I do not think that it will happen at this point as they now have Rootsweb directing to a generic Ancestry advertising page.
What that means for us is that hundreds of links on these pages are now bad. Please be patient as we try to recover the information. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to work on the genealogy data beyond our focus on the Civil War. Contact Us or friend ResearchOnLine on Facebook for periodic notes on our progress.
