Sorry, Bertrand -- but I agree with all the other responses. We LOVE
all the 'extras' that appear, because somewhere, somehow, much of the
information seems to fit in nicely in our trees. Luci

Hello everyone,

I don't want to get into trouble here but...

I chose to receive the messages of this list and to
participate because I think it is one if the best lists, if
not the best, dedicated to Quebec genealogy.

However, I have a problem with the very high number of
messages posted to the list. Receiving and sifting through
many messages adds to the problem we already have with spam

I feel jokes, news from around the world, birthday
celebrations, events in history and such are not really
relevant to the basic "raison d'ĂȘtre" of the list and should
be avoided (or mailed privately to those who would ask for

I even question if the answers in the form of series of
marriage references from the Blue Drouin should not be
simply sent to the person who asked for them instead of
being posted.

Please understand these remarks and suggestions are made
with a positive attitude in mind: I am trying to avoid
having to unsubscribe, which is what I will have to do if
the current volume of "peripheral" postings continues.

Regards to all
