USING ROOTSWEB SURNAME MAILING LISTS
How the lists work: RootsWeb's servers maintain a list of
the email addresses of those who request to be 'subscribers'. When
someone sends a message to the list's address it is resent by the RootsWeb
server to each address of that list's current subscribers. With a
few exceptions, the CCFHA members who have email addresses are subscribers
