  Mailing Lists

Mailing lists are one of the most useful tools on the Internet. Subscribing to a mailing list can put you in touch with others who are doing research in the same geographical areas and working with the same sources. Researchers with interests in Alaska should subscribe to the Alaska genealogy mailing list (AKWEB) as well as the lists for their specific regions.

The lists below are new and were created specifically for this Alaska site.  Hence, traffic will be slow to nil until enough time has passed that word gets around about this site's existence.  You can help these lists grow by telling your Alaska-researching friends about these new discussion groups.

To join a list via email simply click on the 'subscribe' link at the end of the line showing the group you're interested in.  An email form will pop up in your browser.  All you need to do is hit 'send.'  It's that easy!

When you initially join, expect to be monitored.  This is my only way of ensuring that the lists, and you,  are not targeted by spammers.
