RootsWeb is in the process of switching over to new upgraded list management
Our list is scheduled to be migrated to the new system tomorrow if all goes
well. For list subscribers, the changeover should be smooth. The changes
primarily involve the administration tools that keep the list running behind the
The list name is changing from GUYER-L to just GUYER. So you may subscribe

postmaster if they have problems. Others should let their ISPs know this is
mail they wish to receive.

same email address you will find that you are no longer subbed in Digest mode.
The new software doesn't permit the same address to be subbed in both L and D

subscribe to the digests using a different email address.
Please continue to send your queries, data, and responses to the list as
usual. It is a great time to post a new query to try to break down those brick
