      IMPORTANT CURRENT NEWS There are currently technical problems with all RootsWeb Mailing Lists.  I have provided an alternative while we wait for these ongoing and lengthy technical problems to be fixed.
      I've created a pseudo Blog Mailing List - click on that link, then click on the FOLLOW BLOG / FOLLOW THIS MAILING LIST VIA EMAIL on the right hand menu.
      Follow instructions and read the ABOUT and GUIDELINES tabs near the top right.
      Welcome to our pseudo Blog Mailing List.
      There is more information on my normal Geelong and District Blog.
      HOW TO SUBSCRIBE and UNSUBSCRIBE It's easy -- just click on the list you want below. When the "mail-to" window pops up, type just the single word

      subscribe

      in the SUBJECT FIELD and the BODY of the message. That's all - no other words!

      If you want to unsubscribe from a list, click on the relevant link below and type just the single word

      unsubscribe

      in the SUBJECT FIELD and the BODY of the message.   That's all - no other words!

      • This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it - Mail (List) mode - if you subscribe to the list in this mode, you receive each message as a separate email.
      • This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it - Digest mode - if you subscribe to the list in this mode, you receive a group of messages batched together in one mail.

      Important Note 1: Please make sure that you are sending in PLAIN TEXT otherwise your subscription to the Mailing List will not work.

      Important Note 2: You cannot subscribe to both modes with the SAME email address - you must have a different email address for each mode.

      Remember that your subscribe / unsubscribe message may still be sitting in your email outbox until you actually send it.   You will know if you've successfully subscribed as you'll receive a "Welcome" email back.

      Clicking on either of the above options should bring up your email box for you to send a message - if your system doesn't work that way, then open your email system and send an email to the relevant address above with the word subscribe / unsubscribe as required in the SUBJECT FIELD and the BODY of the message.  If all else fails, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

      HOW TO SEND MESSAGES Once you've successfully subscribed to the list, you can send messages.  Instructions on how to do this were in your "Welcome message" but if you can't find that, just click on this address and send us your message ...

      HOW TO CHANGE YOUR SUBSCRIBED EMAIL ADDRESS The Rootsweb computer system treats your old and new email addresses as two different "people".  Until new functions become available at Rootsweb some time in the future, to change your email address you need to subscribe your new email address and unsubscribe your old email address.  (Instructions above).

      If you no longer have access to your old email address then send a message to the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with details of your old address and the name of the list with a request to remove this email address and the reason.
