A Good Genealogy Tip!
When posting a query on a message board, and to garner the most success, try to be as concise as possible writing the subject line, while making sure to cover the all-important basics of who, when and where. A good example of an informative subject line would be: "William BROWN, born 1848, Boone County, Indiana." Avoid using all-purpose, non-informative subject lines that most readers will pass over, such as: "searching for family," "need help," "genealogy," etc.

Post and Read Boone County Queries
Read and post queries or request lookups on the Boone County Message Board at RootsWeb. When you post a new query, be sure and check the box "Send me an e-mail when anyone replies to this message." Do you need to update your email address on the Message Boards? You don't want to miss a reply!


Message Boards & Lists

You have your choice of several message boards and email lists for Boone County. For the best possibility of making a connection or receiving a reply to your query, use all of them. Make sure you always check off the box that says, "notify me when someone responds." You'll then receive an email notification when someone replies, even if it's months later. If your email address changes, make sure to update it on all the message boards and lists you've ever used, so you'll never miss a reply. Better yet, use a free email account such as Yahoo for genealogical purposes and you'll never have to remember to change your address with every list and mutual researcher you've corresponded with in the past, if your regular home email changes. Then your genealogy email address will never change, no matter how often your regular home address changes. Another plus - you'll receive a LOT less spam on your home email account!
