Hello and happy Spring 2000! First, I want to thank each and every one of
you for subscribing to this Rootsweb genealogy list. It is time now for a
brief word from our sponsor :)
All Rootsweb lists cannot accept HTML or Rich Text (RTF) formatted email or
attachments, please make sure all email is in plain text format before
sending to the list. (For more help on setting up your email program to send
text only messages, please visit
When responding to a list email, please change the subject line to reflect
and changes in topic. Also, when posting a query, please be as specific as
possible in your subject line. Subject lines such as: "Surname query" will
most likely be deleted by the majority of list members, however subject
lines such as "Smith, John; London, ENG>Columbus, OH; 1800-1910" will
attract the attention of anyone researching that particular person. Another
example is this: "Smith family: John of London, 1800-1910>Sally of Columbus,
Please feel free to visit the surname resource pages at Rootsweb as well as
our personal mailing list pages by going to http://www.rootsweb.com and
clicking on Surname Resources for the Rootsweb page and to the Mailing list
jump page at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~cbrogan/gen.html and selecting
the list name for our personal mailing list pages.
If you wish to respond to the entire list, just send your message. If you
want to respond to ONLY the person who sent the message, you will need to
change the "to" line in your email to be that person's address instead of
the list address.
If you have a problem with another list member, please do not post to the
list but rather send email to the listowner () and we
will handle it off list.
DO NOT forward Chain letters, off-topic posts, or virus alerts to the list.
This is cause for removal from the mailing list. There are two sites
listed below that deal with these potential hoaxes. Please check one of
them and then email the listowner if you are still concerned. If there is
cause for real alarm, she will address the list.
DO NOT forward other people's mail, email or copyrighted information to the
list at any time without specific permission of the author (and clearance
from the listowner) This prevents "information stealing" and hurt feelings
on the list. If you receive, personally, a query that you think the list
might help with, please send it to me and let me forward it on.
DO NOT attempt to sell, advertise or distribute products to the list members
without prior authorization from the listowner. Doing so is cause for
immediate removal from the list. If you have a genealogy book you have
written that you wish to let people know about, please alert the listowner
for further instructions.
If you would like to read through the archives of this or any other list,
please visit: http://searches.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/listsearch.pl
OK... that's enough of the tough stuff. If anyone has issues with the above
rules, please feel free to contact me via email and we can discuss it. If
there are large "uprisings" about some of the rules, we will vote on action
on the list, but it must first be discussed with the listowner off-list.
While we're on the subject of sponsors though, if any of you would like to
join in the support of our great host, Rootsweb, please become a sponsor or
