Wondering where to post a query regarding your Benton County ancestor? Message boards and mailing lists are different, but each have advantages and may produce different results at different times.

A mailing list is a place where you can have an in-depth discussion with others who are currently researching the same area or surname. RootsWeb mailing lists are archived, so someone may find your post in the future, but by and large, mailing lists are for connecting with others who are actively researching here and now. 

Messages Boards are more like the cork bulletin board next to the water cooler.  You post a note there and hope someone sees it and responds --  either today or some time in the future.
