any. I have marriage index 1864-1980 ( Bride and Groom)and the 1870 and
1880 census if anyone needs me to look something up. Thanks.

Wanted to let y'all know that I'm not going to be around on the computer for
the next few days. We heard today that my adopted mother has come out of
remission for the 4th time and has presented with a spinal tumor. I will be
at the hospital with her until she gets out.
I will be checking mail periodically so if you need me, please put something
in the subject line that will catch my eye.
This was passed on to me and there are some great pictures there! Quite a
few for Kentucky, but unfortunately, none for our region. Closest they come
is Lexington and Breathitt Co. However, I heartily recommend you take a

before you post a message to KYPowell-L(a)rootsweb.com. Also, please save a

How do I unsubscribe? Send a message to KYPowell-L-request(a)rootsweb.com
that contains (in the body of the message) the command unsubscribe and no
additional text (if you have difficulty removing your signature lines, you
can put the word "quit" on the line after "unsubscribe"). You can use CAPS
or lowercase, it doesn't matter. Turn OFF your signature file when sending
either of these commands. If your e-mail address goes bad or your mailbox
fills up, you'll be automatically unsubscribed by the mailing list software
after the fourth message in a row bounces back to Rootsweb.
How to subscribe - Whatever you just did worked, or you'd not be getting
this message. But for future reference (for instance, if your subscription
is canceled for whatever reason and you want to resubscribe), just send the
command "subscribe" to KYPowell-L-request(a)rootsweb.com
How do I change to digest mode? There are two steps. First, send the
command "subscribe" to KYPowell-D-request(a)rootsweb.com to start receiving
digests. Second, send the command "unsubscribe" to
KYPowell-L-request(a)rootsweb.com to discontinue mail mode.
How do I change to NOMAIL mode? There is no formal NOMAIL mode. All you
have to do is follow the directions above and unsubscribe when you want the
messages to stop, and then when you want them to start again, simply
How do I post? If you'd like to post a message so everyone on the mailing
list, just send it to KYPowell-L(a)rootsweb.com. It will then be sent on to
everyone in both mail and digest mode. Don't send it explicitly to both
mailing lists. PLEASE submit messages only in plain text and don't submit
attachments. Different mail packages send mail in different ways. Please
make sure that your mailing is not sending in HTML format. For information
on changing your mail to plain text, please check
http://www.rootsweb.com/rootsweb/listowners/html-off.htm. Use a helpful
subject line like "John Smith, d. 1901, Powell Co.", rather than a generic
one like "My Family Line".
Any person sending a message to this list retains the copyright to it. By
sending the message, you grand to the list custodian, and to her heirs and
assigns forever, permission to distribute copies of the message to other
list memebers, to store archival copies of the message and to make the
archival copies available to the Internet community at large. You also
grant the right to quote your message in part or in total as a part of

Even if you decide not to save this message, please try to remember that,
like all the lists at Rootsweb, the subscribe and unsubscribe messages go
to KYPowell-L-request(a)rootsweb.com (if list mode) or
KYPowell-D-request(a)rootsweb.com (if digest mode), NOT to the
KYPowell-L(a)rootsweb.com address itself.
Who's the list manager? I'm Jen Bawden (jbawden(a)mindspring.com) and I'm
the manager of the KYPowell-L list. If you have problems getting
unsubscribed from the list or have any other difficulties with the list,
write to me, not to the list and I'll see what I can do to help you.
My husband (best friend, cousin, someone I barely know on another list)
send me a virus warning (or something else) and I just want to pass it
along to help others. DO NOT post virus warnings, test messages, chain
letters, political announcements, current events, items for sale, personal
messages, etc. For information on virus hoaxes and urban legends see
http://www.kumite.com/myths/ among others. Don't
send copies of copyrighted material. Don't send messages exceeding 8
kilobytes in length. If someone else violates these rules, please do not
send their message back to this list! That just magnifies the problem, and
defeats our anti-spam defenses at Rootsweb.
Please remember that anything you send through the list goes out to almost
75 members. While I in no way want to stifle free discussion, as list
owner, I reserve the right that, in the event of a flame war erupting, I
will step in.
* 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 the Smith family in Powell
County?" just doesn't cut it.
* 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.
* Consider sending replies to the list, not just to the original poster.
Other members may benefit from the data that you provide.
