| Newsgroups and
No-one told me about newsgroups or discussion groups when I first started on the Web, but they are something that I enjoy and check every day. My server has a list of newsgoups to which I can subscribe, and I can turn them on and off at will. Go to HELP on your menu bar to find out how to locate them. On my browser (Netscape Navigator), I go to FILE on the menu bar of my email Mailbox, and select "Subscribe to Discussion Groups".
It takes quite a while to download the list of available Discussion Groups, so go and prune your roses for a while. When the list comes up, all you need to do (on my browser, anyway) is put a tick next to the one you want. Don't be afraid of the number of messages contained in some of the larger newsgroups. Each day some messages are deleted and new ones added. Once you have got through the initial large number of messages, the new ones that come in every day are more manageable.
Go down to
the "soc.genealogy." area of the newsgroups to
find an area of interest.
"soc.genealogy.australia+nz" is a must for
Australian researchers, but you can find other ones
for Ireland, England, America, South Africa, and so
on. Take a while to look through a few to find
some that suit you.
Newsgroups and Mailing Lists are a bad
place to put your usual email address, so created
a Hotmail or Yahoo mailing list and use those for
your mailing lists, and set your message filters
to exclusive to filter out the spam.
