Submitting Your Request
If you request a mailing list, you will become its administrator. If you do not want to be an administrator, do not complete the request form.
RootsWeb does not charge a fee to become an administrator. You will not need any special equipment other than Internet access to submit your request to be an administrator and a mail program to send and receive e-mail. Public access to the Internet-from a local library, for example-would be sufficient.
Before you make the commitment to volunteer as an administrator, please take some time to learn about your responsibilities.
To adopt or request a new mailing list, complete the request form.
On the form, you will be asked for the mailing list name; for county subjects, you will be asked for the county and state names. To adopt a list, enter the existing name of the mailing list (the name shown on the adoption list) or the state and county name; if you are requesting a new mailing list, enter your preference for a list name.
Your choice will become the permanent name of your list unless someone from RootsWeb contacts you. Names cannot be changed after they are created, so take care when choosing.
