Barton County
email list

Hi! My name is Kathleen Burnett and I am the list mom for the Barton County Kansas genealogy list. Come join others in discussing genealogy in Barton County! If you have any questions or comments about the list please feel free to contact me at kburnet@efortress.com

Not only will this list be a format for sharing information on Barton County among researchers but we will use it to notify you all of changes and additions to the Barton County KSGenWeb page. We also plan on putting new queries on the list before they appear on the website.

Instructions appear below on subscribing to the list.......

1. How to subscribe.
Send the command "subscribe" to KSBARTON-L-request@rootsweb.com.
It is best NOT to include anything else in the body of the message. This includes an automatic signature. Just have the word, subscribe.

2. How to unsubscribe.
Send a message to:
that contains (in the body of the message) the command
and no additional text.

3. How to subscribe or change to digest mode (several postings are combined and sent to you together as a single large message).
There are two steps.
First, send the command "unsubscribe" to KSBARTON-L-request@rootsweb.com to discontinue mail mode.
Second, send the command "subscribe" to KSLINCOL-D-request@rootsweb.com to start receiving digests.

4. How to change to NOMAIL mode.
There is no formal NOMAIL mode. All you have to do is follow the directions above and unsubscribe when you want the messages to stop, and then when you want them to start again, simply subscribe again.

5. If you'd like to post a message so everyone on the mailing list receives it:
just send it to KSBARTON-L@rootsweb.com. It will then be sent on to everyone in both mail and digest mode. You don't need to send it explicitly to both. In order to prevent/curb spamming we have made this a closed list. What that means is that if you want to send a message to the list you have to subscribe to it. If you just want to send one message but don't want to remain on the list you have the option of subscribing, sending in your message, and then unsubscribing. ALTHOUGH WE HOPE YOU'LL STICK AROUND!!!

It's as simple as that. We hope you'll give the list a try.
