January 1, 2018: All links to the Rootsweb site are not working now because of some claims at their site by their "security technician" that there was a "security problem". I doubt that very seriously, because as you can see by previous posts, they have been slowly getting rid of all the free services. Unscrupulous to say the least after having used thousands of people's information on their websites and then "lost" their free site information. I will remove the bad links as soon as I'm able, but this will probably take a while. This is why I quit linking to other sites. They usually end up deleting their pages or going completely down.
Genealogy sites such as Ancestry are trying their best to become a monopoly and succeeding quite well in the process. Many of the free sites are closing after being bought out by ancestry. Sad but true. In my case, they had Yahoo aiding them who completely deleted all of my information with no warning and for no reason whatsoever. Sometimes my conspiracy theory paranoia leads me to consider that perhaps they did it (deleted my site) on purpose just for Ancestry. After all, Ancestry is a very powerful monopoly organization with lots of influential money to pass around.
October 14, 2017: Rootsweb has deleted our guestbook, but there is a Copy of Posts up to 2014. Rootsweb has not been very stable in the past few years. They seem to be making drastic changes and it is possible to lose your work there, so be sure to make backups of all your information. That is what I have been doing on a regular basis to try and preserve as much as possible of my own work. I have experienced a lot of loss on my website stored there as well. They somehow randomly delete pages off your website there, as well.
August 4, 2017. I suspect my sister, Carlene Burkland, will perhaps not approve of this note, but I would like to give her credit for her contribution to this website. She pays yahoo for this web space and she needs to be acknowledged for so doing. She has paid for this website address for at least two years now I hope she doesn't disapprove of my posting it here, but thank you to my sister, Carlene for her invaluable contribution.
July 7, 2017. Most recently I have been working on the census records to make a page for everyone in those particular census records. These census records are a great help to me to allow me to recall what was lost when yahoo deleted my files in July 2015. So far, I have worked on them for 2 years this coming July 15, 2017. Their delete date was July 15, 2015 when yahoo wrongly deleted my site. Since my endeavor, I have made quite a bit of headway. However, I have not updated the links page in some time, but plan to do so in the next few months. I am currently working on the 1850 and 1860 Russell County, Virginia Census. They are a treasure trove. I am now backing up everything I do in several different places to prevent having to go through this awful loss again.
The following is a Link to an alphabetical list of the files that our special cousin, Phyllis Madden, found at archives.org and uploaded to Facebook for us. These files are in pdf form and are not updated, so they will have errors. Thanks to Phyllis Madden for going out of her way to do this for us. It has been a lot of work for her and she is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Phyllis. They can be viewed or downloaded to your computer to save. They are old files and there are a lot of errors and corrections needed but they are all that is left of the site that Yahoo deleted. They are snapshots taken throughout the years by archives.org.
Click on this "Lost Files Link" to get to them. They are nowhere near what I had, but they are better than none. Please Note: You will need to be signed in on your Facebook Page to access these files because they are on Our Potter Family and Friends Facebook Page. More About Us.
