[My sincere apologies for the misspelling of the name Murray in the name of the list.] This is a discussion area for anyone who has an interest in Genealogy or History related to the Murray Twp.,Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada. My name is Ruth Hall and I'm the owner of this list. I'm responsible for keeping it running as smoothly as possible and setting some rules and guidelines.
* Please keep this message. I recommend that you keep a copy on file in your computer as well as a printed paper copy that you can find easily.
* This list is for the discussion of Genealogy and History, primarily
regarding Murray Twp., Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada.
Discussion of migration patterns, immigration, heraldry, historical
sketches, census data, wills, family Bibles, vital records, web sites,
etc. as relates to Murray Twp., Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada
is encouraged. Public announcements of information of interest to
Genealogists in general though it may not be Murray Twp.,Northumberland
County, Ontario, Canada is permitted but please use discretion.
****GUIDELINES***** Small gedcom files are discouraged but not banned from the list (send in a message, NOT as a file attachment) as long as the resulting message is no larger than 61440 bytes maximum.
* Try to keep quoting to a minimum. "Quoting" is repeating text of the message you are replying to. Some quoting is necessary to remind other readers what the thread is about but do try to use good judgement. Quoting the previous writer's signature block or surname list is totally unnecessary.
* Surname lists are okay but please try to limit them to say, half a dozen names. Any more than that and many people just won't read them. Try keeping several small lists and rotate them with each succeeding message.

****TIPS***** Accuracy is important and sources are vital. Ancestor lists are worthless if the information is wrong.
* All information need not be accompanied by source citations, but I do recommend strongly that posts either include sources or a note stating that they are available on request.
* If information is speculation then label it as such until it is proven or commonly accepted as fact.
* When posting your query try to give as much information as you know, i.e. dates and places of all vital events if known, along with enough other family members so that the reader can positively identify if they are researching the same family. "Anyone out there researching "You name" just doesn't cut it.
* When replying to the list (this also can apply to private replies) try to quote some portions of the previous message so that other readers are reminded what the "thread" is about. Make it clear what is quoted material and what you are adding. Most mail readers take care of this for you by inserting greater-than signs ">" at the beginning of each quoted line or possibly double brackets "<<" before and ">>" after the quoted piece. Use standard Windows procedures to "cut" unnecessary material.
* Post your query frequently, perhaps once a month, if you have not yet found your ancestor. New people are joining the list all the time and they may have the info you need.
* Please send replies to the list, not just to the original poster. Other members may benefit from the data that you provide.
