Rootsweb Dead … Again? #Genealogy #Ancestry

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

Rootsweb Dead? … #UnavailableStanczyk

is getting inquiries again. Is Rootsweb dead?

Yes …

Rootsweb d. 23-Dec-2017

Rootsweb Security Notification

It should be revived after some serious changes to the website and its security.

This jester originally thought it was “phishing” but quickly there was no Rootsweb website, just the notice and other genealogists were tweeting about this!

So I changed my concern to what is the exposure? Ancestry and Rootsweb accounts typically share a password! So I immediately changed my Ancestry password and I will verify its changed when Rootsweb is back, but at least Ancestry is safeguarded.

Stanczyk also downloaded my gedcom from Ancestry. This seemed a prudent thing to do. I routinely download it once a month or after a large series of updates (that I really do NOT want to repeat).

Please change your Ancestry password immediately (right after reading this blog)! If you use that Rootsweb password for many websites then update those websites as well.

Oh some of this jester’s data, like Dziennik Polski (Detroit) is unavailable until Rootsweb is back. The data is safe and backed up!

Be safe in 2018!
