This list is completely separate to the Family Historian Users group, but of course many people are members of both of these useful free services.
Below is the post from Simon Orde which was sent the the mailing list.
As you may already know, RootsWeb (the people who host this mailing list)
have announced that they will be discontinuing all mailing lists from March
2nd. Although this list has been a little quiet recently, it is
well-subscribed and we believe that it offers something of value which
should continue. Also, as again you may already know, Family Historian 7 is
coming soon, and from past experience, there is ordinarily an increase in
posts from users when a new version is released; so we wanted to be sure
that we have a good replacement in place, in time for that. And we have
The replacement for the mailing list is a 'group' (that's what they call
them) that we have created, at Groups.io. The new group is called 'Family
Historian', and we would like to invite you all to become members of it -
preferably right now! Groups are very similar to mailing lists. Members
receive all emails sent to the group and can post messages to the group.
But there are numerous ways in which groups are superior to the old mailing
lists. For one thing, you easily browse posts online in a web-browser, with
convenient layout, filtering and search options.
To become a member of the new group, please go to
https://groups.io/g/family-historian and click the "Join This Group" button
(or the "login if you are already a member" button if applicable).
When you have a Groups.io account, you will be able to subscribe not just to
the Family Historian group, but to any of their other groups that interest
you. Some other genealogy mailing lists are also moving to Groups.io.
We will shortly be sending out direct invitations to you all by email, to
join the 'Family Historian' group at Groups.io. Please ignore these if you
have already joined, or if you don't want to.
As an incentive to move to the group, I will shortly be posting some updates
there on the progress of Family Historian 7. Hope to see you there!
