Genealogy Newsgroups, Messageboards
Newsgroups are much like mailing lists. You
and "post" messages as you would to a
mailing list. A newsgroup is unable to send you
messages unless a viewer in the group responds
directly to you. You are able to view all posted
messages within a newsgroup.
Messageboards are places where persons with
similar interests gather to discuss a specific
topic. You "post" messages and a viewer
responds to posted messages by filling out a
board's form. You are able to view all posted
messages within a messageboard.
Please send your message to the Webmaster

you and best of luck with your research!

you are unable to enter a newsgroup.
These newsgroups are primarily interested in
history and genealogy, and moderated to keep in
