I have learned from a RootsWeb staff member that the messages sent to and
distributed by GEN-MEDIEVAL since the gateway (with
soc.genealogy.medieval) broke are being saved up and can be sent to
soc.genealogy.medieval via the gateway after it is re-established. The
status of soc.genealogy.medieval messages not yet sent over to
GEN-MEDIEVAL is less clear. GEN-MEDIEVAL subscribers might need to use a
news reader or Google to see some of them.
