New Zealand L Mailing List Guidelines

My name is Hugh,

I am the owner of this list.

I am responsible for keeping it running as smoothly as possible and setting some guidelines.

RootsWeb is the host for this mailing list.

This New Zealand-L, a mailing list for New Zealand

This list is for the discussion of Genealogy and History, primarily regarding the country of New Zealand.

Discussion of migration patterns, immigration, heraldry, historical sketches, census data, wills, family Bibles, vital records, web sites, etc. involving this area is not only allowed but even encouraged.

1) To POST a message to this list use the address:
2) To SUBSCRIBE or UNSUBSCRIBE send a message to: (if you are in mail mode i.e. receiving
the messages individually or want them individually) or (if you are in digest mode i.e.
receiving a digest of multiple messages or want this mode)

In the BODY of the message (not the subject line) type the word subscribe
or unsubscribe.

Please, no rude comments or flaming on this list. There should be no discussion of flaming here.

Do not impose any other rules or conditions, expressed or implied elsewhere, upon this list. Rules of other forums may not necessarily apply here. Do not try to regulate this list. If you do not like the way someone formats their queries or responses, or the content of their subject titles, take it up with me, not on this mailing list.

The list is for Genealogy and History. Trying to keep quoting to a minimum helps this list. "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.

When replying to a message sent to this list you must decide if this is information that all the list members would like to know about or whether it would only be of interest to the individual you are replying too. If you feel that all list members would find it of interest then by all means post your reply but if it includes such details that would only be of interest to this one person then please just reply to that person.
