Union County
MAILING LIST


Mailing Lists are a method of keeping in touch with other researchers with the same area of interest. There are mailing lists for many locales including Union County and its parent, Colfax County. There are also country and surname-specific mailing lists and mailing lists for special targets. RootsWeb maintains an index of all the mailing lists it houses at http://www.rootsweb.com/~maillist/index.html

The Union County mailing list does not generate much traffic. Subscribers may receive just a handful of messages every month. Do not expect daily mail from this list.



There are two "modes" for most mailing lists:

  • Mail Mode -- Every posting is received as a separate e-mail.
  • Digest Mode -- All postings made in a specific period (usually 12 hours) will be consolidated and sent as a single message. Digest mode may send messages more frequently if many messages are received within a period.

    NOTE: You must turn off SIGNATURES before sending commands to the list server.
