Guidelines for Query Posting

Queries to be entered to the NYGenWeb system must follow the following guidelines:

  1. There must be a connection to the county.
  2. Queries will not be posted concerning possibly living people.
  3. All queries must have a current e-mail address.
  4. Queries must be supported. (Mail answered and help given). If either of the above 2 conditions do not apply, the query may be removed to a "dead letter file".

All entries may be edited for content. Basic sentence structure will not be, however. Except to limit size and/or spelling (Tuston used for Tusten, etc), most edits should be superficial.
