Our list has been changed over to the new software. You shouldn't see a lot
of differences, but there are a few things to be aware of.
Check your spam folder for list messages in case your ISP doesn't recognize
the new RootsWeb server information. If you are an AOLer, click the button
that says "This is not spam" which will let AOL know that you want this mail

Only one subscription is now allowed per email address. If you have been
subscribed to both the List and the Digest version, you'll now have only the
List subscription. If you have another email address, you can subscribe to the

you have any problems, take a look at this page, _RootsWeb: Genealogy
Mailing Lists: LAPP Surname_ (http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/l/lapp.html) .
Current Digest subscribers will notice some changes, and the volume numbers
may be out of sync for a while.
Take a minute to look at the new footers in the messages. They will make it
easier to get to the archives, and your subscription information. If you
think you might have missed any posts during the change over, you can browse
the list archives.
Lastly, if you have a problem that you think might be widespread, post it to
the list. For specific problems, please let me know off list at
_lapp-admin(a)rootsweb.com_ (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) .
Now, it's time to get back to genealogy!
