A Mail-List is a discussion group which is based on the use of internet
mail. Each person who has subscribed to the list receives messages which
are sent to it. In other words, if fifty people are subscribed (not that
many are, yet!), one message is sent to TXBOWIE-L@rootsweb.com, and the
fifty subscribed people will receive it. This method of communication allows
people with a similar interest (such as genealogy in Bowie County) to join
a Mail-List and receive message from other people who have that interest.
It is an easy means of communication in which the information comes to
you, rather than you having to seek it. Currently, the volume is very low
as the list is just getting started. However, it is not for everyone. If
you don't log on but once a month, you may get more mail than you bargained
The purpose of the TXBOWIE-L Mail-List is to allow easy communication between
people interested in genealogy in the Bowie County area. This will include
surname queries and available resources in Bowie County. As new queries
are received through the query form, they will be posted to the Mail-List.
People subscribed won't have to worry about missing any queries, and won't
have to check the query page for new ones. Hopefully, as genealogical resources
are found for researching Bowie County, they will be posted to the list
To subscribe: Send an internet mail message to the Mail-List robot at TXBOWIE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org.
DO NOT enter anything in the SUBJECT line! The body of the message should
contain one word: subscribe. When sending requests to this address,
please turn off your signature block or don't sign your email) as it will
confuse the robot and it may not subscribe you.
To send a message to the list: Send an internet mail mesage to TXBOWIE-L@rootsweb.com.
Please remember to keep the message on-topic. That is, information sent
to the list should pertain to Bowie County genealogy as a whole. If you
want to communicate with one person, send the message directly to them,
*not* to the whole list.
To unsubscribe: follow the same procedure as subscribing, but put the one
word: unsubscribe in the body of the message with no signature.
If you have questions, or problems with the above, please e-mail Jason.
