Rensselaer County
Mailing List

The Rensselaer County Mailing List, moderated by Pat Connors, is one of the most active in the USA. It is an excellent forum for the exchange of all types of genealogical information, and it is a great place to "meet" others who may be searching for the same ancestors as you are. If you subscribe, then every few hours you will receive email messages that have been posted to the list by other subscribers on the subject of genealogical research in Rensselaer County, NY. You will also be able to post your own messages as often or as seldom as you like, and your posted messages will be emailed to all the other subscribers. The entire service is, of course, FREE of charge. You are under no obligation to reply to messages or to post messages; you may simply be a "lurker" if you prefer! And you can unsubscribe just as easily and as instantly as you subscribed. No one asks you for a password or for any personal information. Spam is strictly forbidden, so you won't receive a string of unwanted advertisements. Attachments are forbidden, so you won't receive huge messages that take ages to download or clog up the inflow of messages to your computer. Why don't you subscribe for a day or so and see how you like it?
