1. Try to keep messages to the list relevant to your research. PLEASE DO NOT send any kind of "chain letter", or messages about computer viruses. Almost always, e-mail that asks you to "send this to eveyone you can" is a hoax of some kind. Also, as a general courtesy, please do not send any messages about "business opportunities", regardless of how successful you may have found them to be yourself. A number of people do find these offensive and it's best just to keep them off the list. Any other forms of "advertising" should be relevant, in good taste, and kept to a minimum. Remember, this is for genealogy news, not a business venture. And respect each other's privacy!!!
2. PLEASE DO NOT ATTACH FILES TO ANY MESSAGE SENT TO THE LIST! If you have a text file or a scanned photograph that someone wants, by all means, send it to THAT person alone, don't send a large file to everyone on the list 3. Everyone is welcome to put up an introductory post. Let us all know who you are, where you are, etc. It would probably be a good idea to include some basic personal information. You might also mention occupations, hobbies, whether you wear a kilt, or do caber tossing, etc... 4. By default, replies to messages go to the sender only.
Beyond that, post as often as you like to share news with everyone. Send questions, like "Does anyone know where cousin whatshisname is now?", or "Everyone's invited to our place for Christmas next year" (be brave!) Remember this is our list - let's use it to our best advantage. And most of all, have fun!!!
