What is a mailing list? Does it cost to join one?
Return to Top

A mailing list is a way of forwarding messages to others who are interested in the same genealogical topic. You send your message to the list and it is sent to everyone who has subscribed to that list. And everything that anyone else sends to the list will be sent to you. It is a great way to find others who are researching in the same locality or are researching the same surname and families. RootsWeb.com has lists covering surnames, localities, and various genealogical topics. See them listed here. Click on the name of the list and follow the instructions to subscribe. They are all free to join.
