nothing more frustrating than to find a mutual
researcher you hope to share information with,
only to discover their email address is old and
invalid! Consider using a free email account
such as Yahoo or
Hotmail for genealogy purposes.
No matter how often you change your regular home
email address, you'll never have to try and
remember to change your contact information on
every message board or notify everyone you've
shared information with in the past. You'll
never miss an important lead, and you'll receive
a lot less spam on your regular email account!
It's important to keep
track of all of your correspondence and those
you've communicated with while researching. One
easy and organized way is to use a
Correspondence Record sheet. Use the one
linked above or design your own.
A registry of Boone County surnames and those researching
them. Email addresses are attached to the name of the
researcher to allow you to make contact and share
information for mutual family names or lines of research.
If you would like to be added to the Surname Registry,
me a note with the Boone County surname/s you would like
to be listed with, your name and the email address you wish
to use for the Registry.
Please Note: Due to the fact some of these surname
registrations are old, unfortunately some of the email
addresses may also be old and no longer valid if the
researcher has not remembered to have their registration
updated with us. Please
contact the County Coordinator if you need to update your
contact information, and read the Good Genealogy Tips on the
left for suggestions.
