Welcome to the TERWILLIGER mailing list!

How to Subscribe and UnsubscribeIt's easy -- just click on the list you want.

When the "mail-to" window pops up, write just the single word "subscribe" in the body of the message. That's all.

If you want to unsubscribe from a list, click on it and write just the single word "unsubscribe" in the body of the message.

Mailing lists are remarkably simple beasties: you send a piece of e-mail to the list's address, and the list retransmits that message to everyone who is subscribed.

You must be a subscriber to post to any list hosted by rootsweb.

Mailing list really have two addresses: the list name, where posts should be sent, and the list name followed by -request, where commands to the listserver software should be sent.

For example, posts to ROOTS-L should go to while "subscribe" and "unsubscribe" requests should go to

modes: MAIL mode, where every post is sent to subscribers as a separate piece of e-mail. MAIL mode requires a great deal of effort by the listserving computer.

MAIL mode lists are often named listname-M. DIGEST mode, where about twenty posts are batched together and then sent to the subscribers.

Digests produce less clutter in your mailbox, but replying to an individual message may require a little extra effort.
Digest mode lists are often named listname-D.

That's it - it's all pretty simple.
