WILBANKS-L MAILING LIST

Flowers

For simplicity all references to the family are made as WILBANKS,
assuming this to include those WILLBANKS with two "L's" as well.


WILBANKS-L is a mailing list for the discussion of WILBANKS and WILLBANKS family history and genealogy. Follow the directions below to subscribe to this free service.

As of 14 December 1998 only subscribers may post to the list. If you do not wish to subscribe but have info to share or seek some Wilbanks information, please go to the Wilbanks query board. Be sure to check the box requesting an email notification of any responses to your query so that you do not need to constantly check for answers.


After subscribing (see below) send email to WILBANKS-L@rootsweb.com. It will automatically be sent to everyone currently subscribed to the mailing list.

To join the list yourself, there are two "modes" to consider:

  • Mail Mode -- Every posting made to WILBANKS-L is received as a separate e-mail as soon as it is posted
  • Digest Mode -- All postings made to WILBANKS-L in a 12 hour period will be consolidated together and sent to you as a single large message. Digest mode may send messages more frequently if many messages are received.

    NOTE: You must turn off SIGNATURES before sending commands to the list server.
