And follow the links to the archives. The mailing list owner tries to update the archives towards the beginning of each month. If you don't see last month's archives, pester the list owner.
Send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, make sure you have a reasonable subject line (e.g. "Claudius PHIFER, Orange Co, NC") and provide enough information that someone can be of help. Be sure to include your return email address and your real name. Some mailers don't properly display a return email address, so this is very important. Also including your real name is just a nice thing to do. No one likes chatting with someone known only as "SAMJ46198@AOL.COM" or "email@example.com"
There are no hard and fast rules, but generally speaking, if you think your reply would be of help to someone else on the list, then post it to the entire list. Otherwise, just send it to the original person.
If you pose a question and get quite a lot of private feedback, you may want to send a message to the list with a summary of the information.
Anything that is related to genealogy *and* the PHIFER surname is fair game. NOTE: Short one-time commercial messages advertising services or products are allowed if they are of particular interest to the group. But please, no email spamming.
