RootsWeb Homepages and Freepages URLs Are Working Again

According to the RootsWeb Blog:

“If you had a homepages hosted web site (all of which should be restored), you will find your hompages URL will work.”


“If you had a freepages hosted site (and your site has been restored) you should be able to get to your content again.”

Apparently WorldConnect family trees are not up yet. I wonder if they’re coming back…


Has anyone else tried to follow the links they have provided as an example? The site they have chosen to use seems to have been moved to a server that can’t be found by my iPad.

It’s a bit iffy at times, requiring a re-load, but this has worked for me:


About 1/3 of the Rootsweb pages that I had bookmarked are back up. I’m getting 403 / 404 errors for the others but I will review the links as they may need reformatting. It’s good to have these resources back online.


I have requested to have my freepages site put back up three times and nothing. Today I tried again and they say that I have an “invalid username” It is the only name I have ever used. Can you talk to a real person?
