e-Mail List for Somerset County, PA Genealogy.
NOTE: RootsWeb inadvertantly created a mail list for this county called PASOMERS-L. It was an error - done automatically because our county list doesn't follow the same naming conventions as other county lists on their servers. I am the listowner for both lists and as such have "shut-down" the PASOMERS-L list. Please do not subscribe to the pasomers list -- instead subscribe to the SOMGEN list.
The SOMGEN list is usually a very active list and you may find other Somerset County PA researchers who share your family lines. You can browse through the SOMGEN archives to look at past messages, but you must be subscribed to the list in order to send messages.
Posting A Query
Once you have received notice that you are a listmember, then you can post your
surname lists, general queries, family history, and miscellaneous topics of Somerset County culture
and history. Do not include your query when you send your subscription email.
To post to our list, send your email to SOMGEN@ROOTSWEB.COM.
A Few Guidelines for Successful Mail Discussion
When you reply to an email, please remember to trim all the unnecessary information especially when it is a digest email. Simply highlight the unneeded information and press the [Delete] key before pressing the [Send] button.
Please post surnames in all CAPS and make sure any query or question is clearly and concisely written. Also, we will not tolerate any abusive or degrading communication of any form, nor will we allow "bashing" of any list subscriber. Please do not "SPAM" this list - if your topic doesn't have anything to do with surname lists, general queries, family history, miscellaneous topics about Somerset County culture and history, don't post here. Additionally, if your topic does include Somerset County, please limit the amount of repeated posts about the same exact topic to a few times a year. If you subscribe to repeatedly SPAM this list, I will remove your email address and block any further subscription attempts.
In addition to the above, here are a few more rules.
