General Information on the List:

*

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

DRESSLER-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:

SUBSCRIBE

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 Dressler Surname list in digest mode, send an email to:

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

DRESSLER-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 DRESSLER-L-request; you must use DRESSLER-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.

Because DRESSLER is itself a variant of my DRESSER spelling, I am less familiar with the variants of the DRESSLER surname. I believe the following surnames could be considered as variant spellings, though I am not certain:

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.

Dressler 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 DRESSLER 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.net
URL 1: Dresser Family Worldwide Genealogy Center - has lots of info not found in the searchable databases
URL 2: Database of Partial Dresser Lines - located at WorldConnect and easily searchable; includes some entries for DRESSLER
URL 3: Queries for other spellings - Includes several listings for DRESSLER and what would appear to be variants of either DRESSER or DRESSLER (such as DRESSLAER)
Focus: Jim is the best-known DRESSER researcher there is, with the most data; since DRESSLER is a variant spelling for DRESSER, Jim also collects information on DRESSLER as well. If you are researching DRESSER, his web pages are your best first point of contact; they could well also be the best starting point for DRESSLER research.
