E-Mailing lists are a great resource for finding family information fast. By subscribing to an e-mail list server, you can post queries and receive several replies within a couple of hours. Once the mail list server has received your message, it automatically sends it out to everyone else who has subscribed to that mail list. There are several lists for each province and state within North America as well as several local regional lists. For a complete list of available mailing lists go to http://www.rootsweb.com/~maillist.
