Reynolds Surname DNA Mailing List

Welcome to the Reynolds Surname DNA Project Members Mailing List - participants@reynoldsdna.org

One of the features of our web host service is the ability to set up mailing lists. This is one such list - the Reynolds Surname DNA Project Members Mailing List. All participants in the Reynolds Surname DNA Project who submitted valid email addresses have been added this list, as well as others who have expressed an interest in the Reynolds Surname DNA Project. The purpose and rules of this list are explained below.

This mailing list was established to:

  1. Allow me to post information and updates to the Reynolds Surname DNA Project quickly and easily without compromising the confidentiality of those participants who wish to remain anonymous.
  2. Allow you to ask questions of me and everyone on the list.
  3. Give you the opportunity to post replies and messages to all members of the list.

APPROPRIATE SUBJECTS

Appropriate subjects for this list include:

  1. general questions about the Reynolds Surname DNA Project,
  2. questions and discussions about your test results,
  3. questions and discussions about your relationship with other participants,
  4. requesting others to contact you,
  5. general questions about the Y-chromosome DNA testing.

INAPPROPRIATE SUBJECTS

This list is NOT intended for the general discussion of the surname Reynolds. There is an existing mailing list for this purpose: REYNOLDS-request@rootsweb.com. If do you not belong to this list, I strongly recommend that you join.

This list is also NOT intended for the general discussion of DNA, other than the Y-chromosome test and its application to the Reynolds Surname DNA Project. This are several other DNA tests available, but their discussion on this list will only confuse the issues of concern to this list. There is an existing mailing list to discuss DNA and genealogy: GENEALOGY-DNA-request@rootsweb.com

ISOGG (International Society of Genetic Genealogy) has a couple of DNA mailing lists (yahoo groups) as well as many other valuable resources for those involved in genetic genealogy. Visit them at http://www.isogg.org/

RULES OF THE MAILING LIST

  1. DO NOT use the names, email addresses, etc. of other participants in the BLAIR DNA Project.
    Refer only to their Participant ID#.
  2. DO NOT ask for the names, email addresses, etc. of other participants in the Reynolds Surname DNA Project.
    You may ask that participant #xxxx contact you, but DO NOT ask someone on the list to provide the information.
  3. You may use your OWN name and personal information in messages.
  4. Keep your messages to the Appropriate Subjects and avoid the Inappropriate Subject as listed above.

REPLYING TO EMAILS

If you wish to reply to an email you have two choices:

  1. To send a reply to the entire list click on "Reply All". If you look at the "To:" line it should include the list address.
  2. To send a reply to just the person who sent on the message click on "Reply". Do NOT click on "Reply All". If you look at the "To:" line it should include only the address of the original sender.

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER

Messages sent to the list will show your email address.

This is your list, I hope you will use it.

If you wish to be added or removed from this mailing please send an e-mail to the Reynolds Surname DNA Project Administrator.
