I'd like to introduce the new mailing list that has been created at
This forum is for discussions of ethics, accuracy, integrity, and excellence
in genealogical research.
*As genealogists, what do we consider appropriate and inappropriate
*Is there a code of ethics for family historians?
*What internet genealogical sites would you rank as "excellent"? Which
do you think are "inferior"?
*Should we pay for genealogy? By posting our information to the net,
are we "sharing", or are we just "giving away"?
*Have you been "burned" by another researcher? What can and should be
*Any comments about the big influx of inexperienced "newbie" family
history seekers on the net?
You must be a subscriber to post to the list. To subscribe send the word
"subscribe" (without the quotes) as the only text in the body of a message
to ethics-in-genealogy-l-request(a)rootsweb.com (mail mode) or
ethics-in-genealogy-d-request(a)rootsweb.com (digest mode)."
