The WGHA mailing list is owned by the Winn Genealogical & Historical Association, Inc. of Winn Parish, Louisiana, for Association members to correspond, keep track of the Association, and to make "long-distance" members feel a part of the Association.
The list is open ONLY to members of the WGHA. Each person is checked against the membership list of paid WGHA members. You will not receive a response if you are not a member!
Non-members are encouraged to join the Association and should realize that very little of the material published by the organization will make it to the archives. This includes queries and articles from the quarterlies, books, etc.
The mailing address for postings is WPGHA-L@rootsweb.com.
To subscribe, you must request the service by sending the word "subscribe" (without the quotes) in the subject line of the message, then type your membership name below for verification purposes. Without your membership name, it will delay the process of subscribing you to this list. Send to LAWPGHA-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org (mail mode) NOTE: the subscription will "bounce" to the listmanager who will check to see if your membership is current before manually subscribing you to the list. If you are not a current member, you will not be subscribed and you will **not** receive any notification of such.
(Digest mode to this mailing list is not available.)
Include notices and reminders of meetings, local and state events of a genealogical or historical nature, abstracts of meetings, or ongoing business pertaining to the organization.
Submissions to the archives are NOT ALLOWED on the WGHA mailing list, so members will need to check the archives regularly.
The queries are not uploaded and will need to be placed on the GenConnect board located on the Winn Parish web page by the submitter. Researchers are encouraged to use the Winn Parish web site as well as the LAWINN Mailing list.
General mail and and other postings are NOT uploaded to the Winn Parish archvies.
