THE SOUTH-SURNAME EMAIL LIST

The South-Surname Mailing List is dedicated to the open discussion and sharing of any information pertinent to the South Family, any line, anywhere in the world. Feel free to post anything from queries to web site URL's to family stories to what ever relates to the Souths, but please, keep your posts limited to just South family genealogy/history.

The list co-managers are Jayne McRae & David South (for comments and South family questions), and Scott Hampton (for technical matters). Click HERE to contact any of them.

THE LIST ARCHIVE CAN BE FOUND HERE:

THE COPE EMAIL LIST

The Cope Family Mailing List is a discussion forum for anyone with an interest in the Cope family history and genealogy, from any and all geographic locations. Your participation is invited through the sharing of your family line, by querying other members for help in your own family lines, or by contributing related genealogical or historical information. You are welcome to post short family group sheets, articles, census reports, Bible records, letters and any other items relating to the history or genealogy of the Cope family.

The list co-managers are Jayne McRae & Carolyn Strong (for comments and questions), and Scott Hampton (for technical matters). Click HERE to contact any of them.

GUIDELINES FOR ALL LISTS

We co-managers feel that the fewer the "rules" the better, so we have decided on some very basic guidelines to keep us focused on our main purpose - the genealogical research of our families - and to keep a casual, informal atmosphere where all feel comfortable enough to share.

  1. No Flaming! If you don't like what someone has written, use your DELETE key or email that individual privately. This rule is firm. Flames and insults will NOT be tolerated and flamers will be cheerfully removed from the list.


  2. Please do not send virus warnings, chain letters, political statements, etc. to the list.


  3. No commercial solicitations of any kind are acceptable. If you have genealogical information for sale and would like to announce it here, please send the information to Jayne or David and we will pass it along to the group, if we consider it appropriate.


  4. Please do not send any kind of attachment to the list. Attachments have a tendency to cause too many problems. You are, however, welcome to send the attachments privately.


We look forward to hearing from YOU!
