Subject: First Message on ROOTS-L Genealogy List

This is a test message to the new ROOTS-L list at NDSUVM1.
So far only Alf Christophersen and Marty Hoag are members. I am
also setting it up to distribute items from soc.roots . We will
see if that works.
Alf: From NORUNIT you may enter:
TELL LISTSERV AT NDSUVM1 INFO
to get more information on LISTSERV. To contribute something you just
mail it to .
To subscribe to ROOTS-L the request is sent to :
TELL LISTSERV AT NDSUVM1 SUB ROOTS-L Firstname Lastname
Eg: tell listserv at ndsuvm1 sub roots-l Joe Doe
Alf can also enter commands to add people to the list. EG:
tell listserv at ndsuvm1 add roots-l firstname lastname
or delete them with tell listserv at ndsuvm1 delete roots-l
Alf: If something bad happens you can send the command HOLD to hold
the list (eg. if a loop gets going or whatever):
tell listserv at ndsuvm1 hold roots-l
tell listserv at ndsuvm1 free roots-l
If you want to see a list of users send REVIEW ROOTS-L command.
I hope this is useful. Marty
