I've emailed WEV a few times offering to host his American Silversmiths Genealogy Project but haven't heard from him.

Has anyone heard anything?

WEV was able to respond.....

In short....when it rains it pours...

WEV has more than his hosting company issues...

Apparently the hosting company is being unresponsive about when there will be a resolution. Additionally, they are not permitting users access to their files. Concurrently WEV has some business issues that require his attention.

WE hope the eventual resolutions are good for all.

I check regularly, and it's still down. I'm going through serious withdrawal.

Since our server has lots of capability, I've offered to host on our new server. But so far WEV is waiting for RootsWeb.

I haven't heard anything for a few weeks.

The March 6, 2018 roots update is all about email....What about the stuff that prevents us from accessing WEV's project?

Are you able to tell me when the freepages websites will be back online? Getting desperate!

PLEASE when will the hosted websites be back? I am getting so many enquiries from people that use my website for family history purposes that it is becoming a real effort. We put hours and hours of work into the website over 10 years, and it is all wasted. HELP!

not an answer, but posted recently at:
http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/

Update: March 6, 2018

We have some good news on our progress to bring RootsWeb back online. As of today, the RootsWeb mailing lists are now available to use, meaning you can now send and receive email on RootsWeb email lists just like you used to in the past. In addition to making the site more secure, we’ve upgraded our backend system to provide an easier-to-use interface to manage your email list subscriptions.

To get started managing your subscriptions, go to Setting Up My New Mailman Login and if you are an administrator you will find more info at Setting Up My New Mailman Admin Login.

As of today, any email that is sent will go directly into a new archive. We are in the process of importing the old archives into the new archives and due to the massive amount of content, that process will take time. We will continue to update you on the progress when we can.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to bring these features back online.

How is it not clear that one of the most important things people want back are the hosted websites? WAKE UP AND RESTORE THIS TO THE GENEALOGY COMMUNITY. THEY HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR ALMOST 3 MONTHS! There is no excuse for this kind of timeline other than there is only one semi-techincal person working on this “problem” part time – i.e. this is the lowest priority project at Ancestry, even behind renovating the bathrooms.

It is so wholly frustrating and entirely unnecessary for this amount of time to pass with the ongoing excuses! The thinly veiled reasoning is equally insulting! So many depended upon this for hosted sites that are now virtually gutted due to this interruption. You watch….the ultimate restoration of the site will no longer be public access. It will become a paid site just like Ancestry! All of these excuses are only extending the anxiety so that once the return is posted…even with fee for entry…many will feel they have no option. There’s just no other reason justifying their taking the entire site off-line for “security” reasons and provide the rationale they have….with only a very carefully worded statement response to the question: Will Rootsweb still be free?

Tony Blackham is Chief Information Security Officer at Ancestry.

Hi Mr Blackham,

I’d consider hiring a new IT team so you can fire the workers since our sites are not restored, still, after three long months! Please! Restore our sites.

For those who are USGW volunteers handling county sites in The USGenWeb Project , I am providing web space for counties to be move to at . You should have a copy of your county on your computer. Please visit that site if you would like to move your county while RW is down.

For some reason the system did not include the URLs I provided in my post above. I am the National Coordinator for The USGenWeb Project. Please write to me at ncusgenweb at gmail dot come if you are a county coordinator needing free web space for you county until RW is back online, or longer if you choose. I had put in the main project’s URL as as well as where I am providing space and the system deleted those. I am trying to put it in under the “Your website” space, so we will see if it takes it. It will not take it. I put in a URL and it pops up and says “Please enter a URL” but it won’t take one in any form.

WEV has gone silent. I've offered via email to host his site/project. Never a reply.

Perhaps if we all worked together we could use available sources to reconstruct the WEV project. Anyone interested in a lot of hard work for a good project?
