Hi, for those who are missing posts, here's how to get them. It isn't
simple. But as soon as Rootsweb gets enough money for more disks,
it gets easier. In this example, sub for Oliver Scotch-Irish. These
notes are from another list owner.

Also DO NOT upload hundreds of archives at once. Very hard on rootsweb.
probalby not good for your ISP either.

Good luck,

Linda Merle
