RATIONALE: soc.genealogy.nordic

Many genealogists on the Internet are researching family or ancestors
from some part of the Scandinavia and/or other nordic countries. There
is much in common between genealogy of these countries, especially
regarding public records and research archives. Because of the
commonality of research interests it seems reasonable to conduct
discussions in one group. Separate groups can be formed later if and
as traffic and interest warrant.

CHARTER: soc.genealogy.nordic

Soc.genealogy.nordic is for genealogy and family history discussion
among people researching ancestors, family members, or others who
have a genealogical connection to any people in any part of the
Nordic countries.

The group is open to anyone with an interest in genealogy in any of
the populations of the Nordic countries including, but not limited
to emigrants, immigrants or their descendants.

The scope of the group reflects language, history, migrations, and
the realities of researching public records and genealogical data
archives, and includes questions of local customs and history, or
of regional or national history which affected the lives of these
people and which are difficult to research in the present. To
facilitate the most participation possible, we encourage posts using
the English language. Posts may be made in any of the official
languages of the Nordic countries. However, posters using these
languages should be aware that this may result in fewer responses
because not all the group participants will be able to read the post
(unless an English language translation is included).

The focus of the group is on people as individuals, as members of
ethnic groups, and as part of migration patterns, but not as
citizens of countries. Postings on topics unrelated to genealogy,
especially those relating to current political or religious topics,
are not welcome. Current events and politics are covered by the
soc.culture.nordic newsgroup and there are a number of newsgroups
dealing with religious issues. However, questions regarding past
historical events or religious practices as they relate to the
genealogical research are appropriate.
