General Information on the List:

*

To subscribe to the Dearborn Surname list in regular list mode, send an email to:

DEARBORN-request@rootsweb.com

The subject and body of the message should each contain the single word "subscribe", but without the quotes:

SUBSCRIBE

By subscribing in regular list mode, you will receive each message as it is sent. After you subscribe, you will receive a welcome message with all necessary instructions.

*

To subscribe to the Dearborn Surname list in digest mode, send an email to:

DEARBORN-D-request@rootsweb.com

The subject and body of the message should each contain the single word "subscribe", but without the quotes:

By subscribing in digest mode, you will receive messages in a group at periodic intervals. After you subscribe, you will receive a welcome message with all necessary instructions.

*

To send messages to the DEARBORN list, no matter whether you are subscribed in mail mode or digest mode, use the following address:

DEARBORN@rootsweb.com

You must turn off html before you send your message, as Rootsweb does not accept messages in html. If you find that you have a problem sending messages to the list, there are two things to check. First, check that you are using the proper address. DO NOT send messages intended for the list to DEARBORN-request or DEARBORN-D-request; you must use DEARBORN@rootsweb.com instead. Second, check to see that the e-mail address under which you subscribed to the list is the same e-mail address from which you are trying to send your message. The use of aliases is one possible cause for problems experienced in sending messages.

Contact the List Administrator:

I am the list administrator for the DEARBORN-L and DEARBORN-D surname lists. My name is Mary Dresser Taffet, and you may contact me at any time for help should you need it. My e-mail address is mdtaffet@twcny.rr.com. I cannot promise an immediate answer, but I can promise an answer within a day or two. When you send me an e-mail, please identify the mailing list that you are contacting me about, as I manage several different lists.

My lineage:

I think I have DEARBORN lineage, but I have yet to find it; my brick wall on my DRESSER line is Joseph Dearborn Dresser, who married Susan Almira Smith of Lyndon, Vermont. Joseph was born sometime between 1819 and 1831, most likely in Maine. At this time, I believe my connection to Dearborn is most likely to have been a female of the surname DEARBORN who married a male of the surname DRESSER; perhaps she was the mother of Joseph Dearborn Dresser, or perhaps the connection lies further back than that.

-----------------------

Surname Variants:

A surname variant is one where the name is spelled differently but nevertheless refers to the same family. In some cases variants exist because of errors made by persons transcribing handwritten records. In some cases variants exist because census takers or other persons wrote a name the way it sounded, rather than the way it should be spelled. Lastly, surname variants exist because people, from time to time, choose to change the way their name is spelled.

I do not personally know of any variants for the surname DEARBORN at this time.

If you know of surname variants, please send them to me at mdtaffet@twcny.rr.com, with an indication of the circumstances under which they appeared.
