'Retirement' of Rootsweb features on Ancestry.
« on: Monday 23 October 17 13:32 BST (UK) »
On doing my periodic check of my Guestbook on my Freepages family history website, I discovered that Ancestry have 'retired' the Rootsweb Guestbook that I use for visitors to leave queries/comments, etc.

I had no notfication about this or other Rootsweb 'retirements' - the Surname List & the Genealogy Forum features closing on Tuesday Oct 24, 2017.

I've lost nearly 20 years worth of queries/requests/info etc. from fellow researchers.

Luckily I have a complete backup of my website on my PC, but not the Guestbook.  I wonder what else Ancestry is going to 'retire' from Rootsweb....
I now have over 600 webpages to edit.......
