people subscribe to multiple mailing lists. They get LOTS
of messages. To help others sort through all the mail
they get to find the messages that pertain to their particular search, please
observe the following
providers in an effort to stop spam (unsolicited email) inadvertently
block subscription lists like ours. If you find that you are not
getting any list messages, drop a line to your list administrator and
we will try and help you resolve the problem.
If you are searching for a particular surname,
please put that surname in CAPS as the first entry on the subject
line. Identify the location that relates to your
message on the subject line. Identify the time period
that relates to your message. When a subscriber receives many messages,
the one that has a subject line such as Searching for Family
or Looking for Grampa doesn't help the subscriber
decide whether or not it pertains to their search. After a while,
most subscribers just delete these without reading them. If your
message doesn't really relate to a particular surname, please make the
subject line as descriptive of your message as you can, particularly as
it relates to Location.
