Rootsweb's CASANFRA List Web Page

The CASANFRA mailing list is for the discussion of genealogical research specifically in San Francisco County, California, and is meant to be a companion list to the San Francisco Genealogy site at: http://www.sfgenealogy.com

There are no charges to be a listmember.   Anyone with an interest in San Francisco genealogy and history is welcome to subscribe and post messages within the rules and guidelines listed below. CASANFRA is a "closed" list, meaning that only listmembers may post messages, so unwanted "spam" or junk e-mail is something we are rarely subjected to.

It is hoped that the CASANFRA list will provide a friendly and helpful forum for the exchange of interesting discussions regarding San Francisco genealogy and history.

Two versions of this list are available, depending on your preference:
Regular e-mail version:  You will receive each post in a separate e-mail message.
Digest version:  You will periodically receive several posts grouped together in one e-mail
message.

To subscribe to the regular e-mail version:
Turn off any signature files you may have in your e-mail program.
Send an e-mail to:   CASANFRA-L-request@rootsweb.com
In the body of the message, type ONLY the word:

and nothing else.
You will receive a "welcome message" with further instructions.
Please print this out and SAVE IT for future reference.

To subscribe to the digest version:
Turn off any signature files you may have in your e-mail program.
Send an e-mail to:   CASANFRA-D-request@rootsweb.com
In the body of the message, type ONLY the word:

and nothing else.
You will receive a "welcome message" with further instructions.
Please print this out and SAVE IT for future reference.

How to post a message:
You must first be subscribed to either CASANFRA-L or CASANFRA-D to post messages.
Once you're subscribed, if you'd like to post a message so everyone on the mailing list receives it,
just send it to:
CASANFRA-L@rootsweb.com.
It will then be sent on to everyone in both mail and digest mode.  You don't need to send it explicitly to both.


"Rules" for CASANFRA-L:
1.   All posts should be on-topic: that is, specifically related to San Francisco genealogy.
      Discussions on other *related* topics, such as San Francisco history, are also welcome.
2.   Do *not* post attachments or files to messages sent to the list.
3.   Do *not* post "virus alerts" or any message that tells you to "send this to everyone you know."
4.   Do *not* post messages regarding "missing persons", "long-lost friends" adoptions, or involving
      any other persons who may still be living.
5.  All posts should be polite and civil.  Arguments, unpleasant attitudes, foul language, etc. have no
      place here.
6.   For topics and threads that are more "chat-related", I suggest the NORCALCHAT-L list that
      is available specifically for the enjoyment of those who also want to participate in friendly,
      chat-type exchanges.  CASANFRA-L is meant to be more focused on specific San Francisco
      genealogy discussions.
7.   Responses/results of lookup requests by volunteers *are* encouraged to be posted on the list,
      but please be sure you have the permission of the researcher before posting private
      messages to the list.  While some listmembers may disagree with the policy of posting lookup
      results, it is more important for the generous lookup volunteers to be aware of what lookups
      have already been done, so that they aren't wasting time doing duplicate work.  An additional
      benefit of this policy is that other subscribers can learn a great deal about "how" to conduct
      their own research, and about "what" resources are available and "where" they can be found.


"Guidelines" for CASANFRA (which will help keep the CASANFRA list pleasant for all):
1.   Please be selective in what you post or reply to.  Re-read your posts before you send them.
      Be sure they are relevant to San Francisco genealogy, or add something useful to a discussion
      about San Francisco genealogy that's already taking place.
2.   Personal messages such as "Thank you" or "I agree", directed to only one person or regarding
      only one specific post, should be sent privately to the person, *not* to the list.
3.   Please use relevant subject lines, and consider capitalizing SURNAMES.  This will increase the
      chance that your message will be noticed.
4.  When replying to a message, please quote *only* the relevant section, not the entire message.

How to Unsubscribe from CASANFRA:
You MUST unsubscribe from the same exact e-mail address you used to subscribe.
Turn off any signature files you may have in your e-mail program.
If you are subbed to the regular e-mail version, send an e-mail to:

If you are subbed to the digest version, send an e-mail to:

For either version, in the body of the message, type ONLY the word:
unsubscribe
and nothing else.
You will receive a confirmation message saying that you have been removed from the list.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the CASANFRA mailing list.  Good luck with your research on your San Francisco ancestors, and have fun!
