Good morning, Roarks!
Sorry--I answered Jeanne's post yesterday, and I should have copied my reply
to the list to avoid duplication of effort. I'll do so below.
By the way, I included instructions for retrieving archived mail. However,
NO mail was archived between abt Jan 31 and Feb 24/25, and that was a period
of great activity on our list.
Does anyone have an idea about how to handle that?
Welcome to the ROARK discussion group! Below, I'll give you some
Instructions aside, the best way to start sharing information would be to
offer some. Introduce us to your (your mother-in-law's) ROARK line. Send a
descendants chart that starts with your earliest known ROARK. Other Roarks
may be on the list who belong to the same line. Tell where your information
As an example, I'll send you, by separate message, what I sent to the group
about my ROARK line. Your chart may have more or less information than mine;
send what you can.
You didn't say whether Chuck Gross told you how to subscribe (which you have
to do in order to get the postings to the group). In case he simply gave you
our email address, here's how to subscribe. Send the following message.
Follow it exactly, because commands to the list server (Maiser) are handled
[Subj.:] (anything you want; it doesn't compute)
[Text:] SUB ROARK
That's all there is to subscribing. You'll get a "Welcome" message from
Maiser. READ IT! SAVE IT! It contains instructions on how to send later
You'll start getting the ROARK messages as soon as you have subscribed, and
you can post your own information and queries. SAVE THE MESSAGES. You never
know when some bit of info will come in handy later.
To get earlier messages, you'll need to obtain archived mail from the list
server. At the end of this message, I'll copy the complete instructions for
doing that. I can save you doing Step 1: Filelist = 3, ID = RRK. So start
with Step 2 by sending the following message:
Go on from there.
