Mailing Lists Research Tip
An electronic mailing list, like newsgroups, are large online discussion groups. Unlike newsgroups,
however, you must subscribe to the list in order to receive any postings made to it. Messages on a
particular subject are forwarded by email to all members of the group that has subscribed. Messages
are not private; they can be read by anyone accessing the list postings. The
Roots-L mailing list
is one of the oldest genealogy discussion groups online.
To find a mailing list of interest to you, either click the Roots-L mailing list above, or select the
locality for the mailing list you want to join.
