      On 16 June 2014 there was a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack on
      Ancestry.com, which hosts the Rootsweb mailing lists.

      These mailing lists are still down after a week, and there's been no
      information about when they will be working again. If anyone has some
      information about it, please post it here.

      This has affected some of the lists dealing with parts of Africa, especially
      the southern African ones.

      Until they are working again, people who are feeling cut off are welcome to
      post things here -- after all, KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape are just as
      much part of Africa as Tunisia, Mauretania and Somalia.

      And if anyone has any news of the Rootsweb lists working again, please post
      that here too.

      Keep well,
      Steve Hayes
