Update: February 9, 2018 - FROM ROOTSWEB REGARDING MAILING LIST
We are on track to bring the mailing lists back online by the end of this month (February)
We have taken the RootsWeb Mail system offline for the next few weeks so that we can upgrade the Mailman system. Mailman is the software which runs the mailing lists. While the system is down, you will not be able to send or receive email. We thank you for your patience.

PURPOSE OF LIST
The NYDELAWA Mailing List is an e-mail list for those researching ancestors in Delaware County, New York. It is a place to post topics of interest relating to Delaware County: genealogical, historical, anything that helps one understand the cultural background of one's ancestors along with posting queries relating to surnames you are researching. It is not to be used for commercial purposes. We are a volunteer group, and many have given long hours of their time to both the list and to this website that partners with this list.

Remember that we were ALL new to the computer, e-mail, and Internet at one point, mistakes will be made (I made my share) - so exercise the same good manners that you use in everyday life!
1) I, Rene' Treffeisen, am the List Administrator of the NYDELAWA List courtesy of Rootsweb.
2) I choose not to have a moderated list (a list where messages go through the listowner, giving them the power to censor).
3) It is my responsibility to intervene when someone goes off-topic - this is done at my discretion and taken care of privately - not through the list.
4) Any complaints about postings or how the list is run should be directed to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5) In October 2006 we had 557 subscribers.!
