The web pages and the mailing list are separate. If you need a lookup and there is a volunteer listed on a web page, contact him/her directly via the e-mail link in the listing. While some listed volunteers may also subscribe to the mailing list, it is not a requirement.
The mailing list is to be used for the following:
To make the list work well for as many subscribers as possible by focusing on obituary requests and resources, subscribers who violate the above rules will be warned first and then unsubscribed if necessary. If you have concerns or questions, please e-mail one of the list owners privately rather than send a message to the mailing list.
If you are unfamiliar with mailing lists in general or RootsWeb lists in particular, please see RootsWeb Mailing Lists for more information and a list of thousands of genealogy-related mailing lists.
You can subscribe to a mailing list in one of two ways. Mail Mode means that each time someone sends a message to the list you will receive it as a separate e-mail message. Subscribers to this list may receive 15 or more messages a day in mail mode. In Digest Mode you still receive all of the posts to the list, but they are grouped in a single e-mail message that is sent once or twice a day. There is an index at the beginning that shows you the subject lines of all of the messages included.
