Please remember that this list is for -genealogy only-. We exist to
provide a place for genealogy discussions, questions etc away from
discussions that are of any other nature.
Also, remember that right now, I only have sparodic computer access
due to my personal health situation right now. As a group, we have
blessedly few problems (thank goodness), however, there was a time in
the past when things got so out of hand in terms of off topic
discussions that I had no choice but to set the list to moderated,
which means every message had to be approved by me first... and in
the current situation, that may mean that I only get to a computer
once a week.... I doubt that is what anyone wants.
We are all adults here and are capable of adhering to rules of the
list, and I hope be understanding of my situation right now in terms
of limited time. This list means a lot to many people (including me),
so please... be considerate of each other and keep the list on topic
and also I would appreciate your understanding of my own situation at
this time. I hate being the "bad guy" and having to send these kind
If someone sends an off topic message... and I am not around...
please write to them privately and explain the situation. Also, since
I open my hotmail account before I read list messages (I read them on
the webpage ), feel free to write to me at maurasminis@...
and let me know -- that would be quicker.
Thank you all for your consideration and helping keep this a great
list to research our roots!
