Subject: [SMOOTHY] ADMIN MESSAGE FOR 2003
Date: Mon, 3 Feb 2003 00:24:40 EST
this is a general mailout to the lists I administer to ask that people
participate more actively to the list they are subscribed to.
For those people who are subscribed to a SURNAME list ... you are able to do
this by posting your interests to the list ... please remember to include the
year and when you put the tow/city in you also INCLUDE the
county/state/country ... not everyone on the list is a walking talking
geographical encyclopedia. The benefits of putting this information to the
list is that it not only helps you to link up with other subscribers of the
same family it places the information in Rootsweb.com archives enabling web
searchers to locate YOU. If you are concerned with someone 'pirating' your
info, just be a little cautious in what you say yet still maximising your
opportunities. Besides these opportunities, if you give enough information
people who have resources or live in to same place as your research may look
up the information for you ... I know from personal experience that limited
information given will not exact a response from these people.
For those people who are subscribed to a resource list, perhaps you might let
people know what town/county/state/country you live in and what resources you
have that may assist others on the list.
Remember ... we are all subscribed to the list with a common goal in mind ...
to reclaim our heritage from the history books and to help others find theirs
if you don't participate you cannot maximise your opportunities ....
Finally, while I have this opportunity a reminder ...
1: DO NOT POST VIRUS WARNINGS TO THE LIST. (If you are concerned contact me
2: DO NOT FLAME OTHER SUBSCRIBERS AND MOST OF ALL ME ... ( I behave like a
Bright Blessings everyone and good luck with your research
