We're the original Internet genealogical mailing list (our first messages were posted in 1987), and the largest. But that doesn't mean we're not interested in new faces, new queries, new knowledge. Please join us! To subscribe, just send an e-mail to with the message subscribe To later unsubscribe (yes, not everyone chooses to stay with us), just send to that same address the message unsubscribe If you'd prefer digest mode instead of mail mode (single messages), send your subscribe message instead to ROOTS-L Files and Databases Over the years, various people have voluntarily started and maintained a collection of files and databases in cooperation with other ROOTS-L participants. ROOTS-L Messages and Archives Monthly indexes, with links to the messages listed therein.
