A formal Request for Discussion (RFD) has be posted to news.groups
and to news.announce.newgroups. What is presented below is NOT the
full RFD. It is merely an informational pointer for those who
are interested. Be sure to read the full RFD before commenting
on the proposal. Further discussion about this RFD should take
place only in news.groups and not in this forum. This is not
a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time.
ABSTRACT of RFD:
Rename moderated group soc.genealogy.jewish to soc.genealogy.jewish.misc
Create moderated group soc.genealogy.jewish.methods
soc.genealogy.jewish.misc Jewish genealogy general discussion
soc.genealogy.jewish.methods Jewish genealogical methods and resources
The purpose of this reorganization is to create the opportunity for
discussions about Jewish genealogy methodology to flourish in their own
separate worldwide newsgroup. It is hoped that this new group will
encourage Jewish genealogy scholars and experts to share their knowledge
with those just starting out.
This reorganization is designed to allow for future Usenet newsgroup
expansion and to allow for enhancement of the ever-increasing discussions
about Jewish genealogy. This reorganization is meant to enhance the
quality Jewish genealogical discussions taking place on the Internet and
augment the present discussion taking place in soc.genealogy.jewish (and
it's twin mailing list ).
The proposed soc.genealogy.jewish.methods newgroups will be a world-wide
news group for discussion of Jewish genealogical methods, case studies,
tips, techniques, and resources.
Appropriate types of articles would include discussions of research
sources, research results of a general nature, FAQs, book lists, personal
insight essays, announcements of new publications and research, analyses
of historical patterns (such as naming patterns, migration routes,
styles, cultural influences, etc.), how-to techniques and tips, analysis
research problems, and reviews of current research.
Other than the Usenet Newsgroup name change, no other changes are being
proposed for the group soc.genealogy.jewish.misc.
