Rootsweb Lists Spring Back to Life!

Rootsweb was offline for some months, and is now coming back online,
one piece at a time. First to return was World Connect:
https://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ and the Message Boards have
continued to work and were not offline.
http://boards.rootsweb.ancestry.com/

Now lists have been upgraded and restored, and the archives are being re-filled from backups. Find your way here:
https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/. Create a new login here: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/lists/setupmail.
Once you have set up your account, you will be able to control list mail and how you receive it. Remember to link older email accounts as well.

Washington State lists are here:
https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/USA/Washington/ -- including the Washington State Genealogical Society lists.

If you would like to support this effort, why not become a listowner?
Create a login: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/lists/setupadmin and then head over to http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/lists/orphanedlists to adopt one. There is even a list for new listowners: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/search/NEWBIE-LISTOWNER

Once lists are working perfectly, the websites will return too!
