Guidelines for the Mailing List
(Do's and Don't's of a mailing list)

This list is for the discussion of Barron Co. Genealogy and History only.   This includes historical sketches, census data, genealogies, vital records, immigration, family Bibles, settlements, web sites, etc. as they relate to Barron Co.  Please keep your discussions within these guidelines.

The "DO's":

 Give public announcements of information that is of Barron County genealogical  and historical interest. Please use discretion!  (ie. National meetings, seminars, tours, etc. are better announced on a state level mail list.)   
 Try to keep "quoting" to a minimum.  Quoting is repeating text of a message you are replying to.  Some quoting is necessary to remind others what the thread is about, but please do not quote large postings (Digest listers, please refrain from sending a copy of the whole digest when you reply!)
 You may add a list of surnames, but please try to limit them to 6 names or so.  If you have more, feel free to rotate them with each succeeding message.

The "DON'Ts" :

 Do not send virus warnings, test messages, chain letters, items for sale, etc.  For information on virus hoaxes see  among others.
 Please do not send file attachments.
 No rude comments, swearing, or flaming is allowed on this list!
 Do not impose any other rules or conditions upon this list.  Do not try to regulate this list.  If you don't like the way someone formats their queries or responses, take it up with the list owner, NOT on the list!
 No selling of items or services is allowed on this mail list!

Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in expulsion from the list.

Remember:  This list is for Barron County Genealogy and History ONLY!
