General Information on the List:

*

To subscribe to the Dresser Surname list in mail mode, send an email to:

DRESSER-L-request@rootsweb.com

A subject line is okay, but not necessary. Do not use html or a signature line in your email. The body of the message should contain the single word "subscribe", but without the quotes:

By subscribing in mail 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 Dresser Surname list in digest mode, send an email to:

DRESSER-D-request@rootsweb.com

A subject line is okay, but not necessary. Do not use html or a signature line in your email. The body of the message should contain the single word "subscribe", but without the quotes:

SUBSCRIBE

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 DRESSER list, no matter whether you are subscribed in mail mode or digest mode, use the following address:

DRESSER-L@rootsweb.com

You must turn off html before you send your message, as Rootsweb does not accept messages in html -- they will be returned to you without going to the list. 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 DRESSER-L-request; you must use DRESSER-L@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.

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

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.

Known variants of the DRESSER surname include, in alphabetical order (some of these come from Jim Dresser's page):

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

Dresser researchers:

If you would like to be added to this list, please send e-mail to me at mdtaffet@twcny.rr.com, clearly indicating the purpose of your message, and the mailing list (I manage several lists, and need to know that you are referring to the DRESSER list).

Researcher names are arranged according to the alphabet:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

D

Name: Dresser, Jim
E-mail: Jim@Dresser.org
URL 1: Dresser Family Worldwide Genealogy Center - has lots of info not found in the searchable databases
URL 2: Main Dresser Database - now located at WorldConnect and easily searchable; includes only the known descendants of Christopher & Margaret Dresser
URL 3: Database of Partial Dresser Lines - now located at WorldConnect and easily searchable
URL 4: One Lineage from the Dresser Worldwide Genealogy - also searchable (WorldConnect; descendants of Christopher Dresser via his son John Dresser who came to America)
Focus: Jim is the best-known Dresser researcher there is, with the most data. He stays quite busy as a park ranger in Groton, Vermont, during spring, summer & fall, but spends his winter months helping us lost Dresser's try to find our roots. I suppose his focus is the main Dresser line from John Dresser of Rowley, Massachusetts, but he collects and shares data on all Dresser's. His web pages are your best first point of contact when you begin to search your Dresser roots.
