Listers, just a few points to remember regarding this list,
Recently in the Rootsweb magazine there appeared a notice concerning mailing
list netiquette and the 'golden rule' of e-mail content written by another
person/s that a subscriber posts to the list from another list or one
received privately. What this is, is a breach of that persons copyright if
you have first not sought their permission to forward it to the list.
We often seen "seen on another list", or, "thought this may be useful to
someone". Please do not assume that the author of the original author wanted
their e-mail (or part thereof) read by anyone else other than the to the
holder of the address they sent it to in the beginning. If you think that
you would like to post it somewhere else . contact the author and ask their
The Rootsweb AUP (Acceptable use Policy) at

OFF TOPIC MESSAGES TO THE LIST
Please remember to keep your postings to the list relevant to the list
title. Every time a message is posted to the list, it is stored in the
RootsWeb.com archives. If you post 'willy nilly' to the list it uses up
vital archive space where more important information could have been stored.
By the same token, when replying to a message, make sure you include the
CORRECT subject information and ONLY the message you are replying to. It is
also worthwhile to just <snip> what you are replying to, or, editing out
standard footers such as those used by yahoo.com and msn.com.
If you feel that there is something that you absolutely, positively must
post to the list but know it is off topic then run it by me first. List
administrators can all be contacted at:
