Dear List Members - PLEASE DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENTS on the personal
e-mail you are receiving without being 100% plus sure who it is from and
that it is not a virus and the only way you can be this sure is run a

of this you can join the Virus Discussion Mailing list by sending the

We are going to be OK. These viruses cannot be sent through Rootweb so
it is up to each of us to protect our fellow members. When I get a
message from one of you and see that you have the virus, your e-mail
address is unsubscribed from the mailing list until you get your
computer system clean and then you are welcomed back with open arms.
Just remember - do not open ANY attachements unless you are sure it is
not a virus. If you are not sure - delete it. Those of us who are
deeply nvolved in our genealogical research are so fearful that we are
going to delete that one clue, which we have been waiting for, that many
of us are opening these attachements - taking the chance - and because
of this we are being hit hard by the virus.
I appreciate your help with this.
