Once accepted to the project, new county coordinators will be subscribed to the business mailing list. While subscription is required, only the list administrator may sign up new members or change email addresses. List members may be subscribed in regular or digest mode. Once subscribed, coordinators may post messages by sending mail to GAGEN@rootsweb.com.
Chatty posts are allowed on this mailing list. However, please place BIZ in the subject line when sending messages all members should read. Some members prefer not to read chat and use BIZ to filter their messages.
Click on the link below to subscribe to the GAGEN list. Once accepted to the list, as each subscriber to the list sends messages to the list address, you will receive a copy of the message.
To post messages to everyone on the list:
The GAGenWeb Mailing List is an e-mail list aimed at furthering genealogical research for those whose families might have pioneered–settled in–or just passed through Georgia.
Once you subscribe to this list, new messages will be delivered to your email address. If you would rather have the messages accumulated and sent on a slower, more routine basis, then you as a subscriber can alter your subscription to use the digest mode. As messages are sent to the list address, they are put into a digest to be delivered later. The digest is generated approximately once a day and delivered to digest subscribers. This option is handy for people who don’t want multiple messages to accumulate in their mail box.
To manage your subscription, go to this link. Once logged in, you’ll be able to see what mailing lists you are subscribed to and an option to change preferences of the delivery mode.
Do NOT use a signature file attached to the e-mail message. The software reads your message and tries to answer each command it finds. When it runs across your signature file it gets a bit confused and will send you a message stating something like ‘Do not recognize command ‘Jones’. Do not recognize command “Smith”, etc.
We are looking forward to your participation!
Linda Blum-Barton, State Coordinator
