>> Good Morning Izard Family.
>> I am wondering whether I have anyone on the list for a long time who

>> I have never been a power hungry person, and have always acted in a
>> way that I felt was best for the list as a whole. However, it
>> appears that my basic desire for the list's good has been taken to
>> mean that I am a power hungry person, and I have been threatened with
>> a lawsuit. The list is a genealogy list, and doesn't need to be
>> effected by anything that may happen in the future.
>> If you believe that you would honestly be willing to take the list
>> and care for it and the members who are on it, without changing the
>> family atmosphere that it has always had, please contact me privately.
>> Thank you!
