The RootsMagic Users Mail List link http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/other/Software/ROOTSMAGIC-USERS.html on http://rootsmagic.com/Help/ is broken. It displays this error message "Not Found The requested URL /index/other/Software/ROOTSMAGIC-USERS.html was not found on this server."


I'm not sure if the website is still available or not. If not, then that section of the RootsMagic Help page should be removed. If it is available, then the URL needs to be updated.

Rootsweb and all of its archives were taken down by Ancestry due to a breach in December where over 300,000 user accounts were leaked online. Some parts have been put back up and others remain  down.

The URLs for all of the RootsWeb lists changed when the sites were brought up on the new servers.


The current address for the RootsMagic list is...



It appears that RootsMagic hasn't updated the link on their site.

It's been sent to development.
