The RootsWeb home page still has the notice about the temporary downtime:
Further down are all of the home page links:
I clicked on a number of the links - especially the Getting Started, RootsWeb Guide to Tracing Family Trees, etc. I clicked on all of the major tabs at the top of the RootsWeb page and they all worked, and I could search for persons in the Search, Family Trees, Mailing Lists, Message Boards and Web Sites.
I have seen messages start to come through on the Mailing Lists I subscribe to, but there is probably a backlog there.
As I point out to my Beginning Computer Genealogy students, there is a wealth of FREE genealogy information on the RootsWeb site, especially in the Family Trees, Message Boards and Mailing Lists. A search for a specific person may result in finding other researchers with the same family interest, along with a contact email (which may be outdated).
