MAIL LISTS for State Coordinators

All state coordinators are required to be subscribed to the State Coordinator mail list on Google. It is highly encouraged that the State Coordinators request that their Assistant State Coordinators subscribe as well. The State Coordinator can then share appropriate information with their County Coordinators via their own mandatory state mail list. Since this list is restricted to State and Assistant State Coordinators you must be subscribed by the National Coordinator. To subscribe, send an e-mail to the National Coordinator, providing your name, state and position.

USGenWeb RootsWeb Mail List Archives

Some previously used RootsWeb mail lists can be read and reviewed at their Archives on Ancestry/RootsWeb. In 2016 when RootsWeb began experiencing issues with the mail lists, most messages prior to April 2016 were lost except Board and State-Coord.

USGenWeb Board Archives
State Coordinator Archives
Discuss Archives

The Discuss List was originally archived. At one point, the Archives were removed. The National Coordinator requested that they be reinstated, at which time all archives were visible; however, in 2016 when RootsWeb began experiencing issues with the mail lists, all messages prior to April 2016 disappeared. Currently there are minimal postings located at:

ABChat Archives
