    1. [AUS-CHINESE] Notice that this list is about to close.
    2. Peter Lakeman
    3. Hello members of the AUS-CHINESE mailing list, currently hosted on Rootsweb/Ancestry servers. My name is Peter and I have been the list administrator of this list since it was abandoned. I have no idea when it was abandoned nor who the previous admin was. On 7th January 2020, Rootsweb informed all list admins that they will not be providing any mailing list services after 2nd March 2020, except to keep the archives available (see RW email appended below). In other words, all lists will cease to be. If members want to keep this list active, they will need to host it on a new server. A number of such servers exist, such as groups.io, FaceBook, google groups. I personally do not wish to remain the admin of this list, so one of the members will need to step up as a new administrator if they want to keep this list alive. As a side comment, I think that many of the smaller lists were created on a person's whim in Rootsweb's heyday, and are probably past reviving. I can't remember when the last post to this list was. If there are any questions, please post them to the list, but do it quickly as time is running out quickly. Cheers Peter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails.  Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    1. [AUS-CHINESE] Your AUS-CHINESE mailing list is operational again.
    2. Peter Lakeman
    3. Hello subscribers to the aus-chinese mailing list. All Rootsweb mailing lists have been nearly dead for the last two or so years. In February this year, Rootsweb upgraded the software that runs their 30,000 or so mailing lists, and after a few teething problems, the system is now up and running. The archives of past posts are gradually being restored, but this may take months. Subscribers may notice minor differences. The main difference for you is that you can register as a subscriber and then be able to adjust options for how you receive emails (e.g. single posts or digests in plain or MIME format, halt mail while on holidays and a few more things). Or you can just leave things as they are. As a reminder, this mailing list is anyone with a genealogical or historical interest in the migration of Chinese to Australia. For questions about the operation of this list, please contact the list administrator at      [email protected] To post to this list or respond to a post, use the email address      [email protected] Your list is back up so if you want to keep it active and ongoing, please post your queries or information to the list. Cheers Peter Lakeman Temporary List Admin

    1. [AUS-CHINESE] Message from Phillip Moon in Brisbane
    2. Phillip Moon
    3. Hello, I have been attempting to find out information regarding my Great, Great, Great Grandparents. It is very difficult for me because I'm disabled as a Paraplegic, Legally Blind in both eyes and almost deaf in both ears. If you can help me at all I would be so appreciative! I will make it as easy as possible for you to follow. First of all there is myself the eldest of the two children (me and I am the eldest 64 - then my Sister who is 62) that my Parents had. My Parents names are and were, (Charles Wilfred Moon born in Nambour, QLD, on the 8th June 1927 - still with us), my Mother was (Leila June Kearns) born in Maclean, NSW on the 29th June 1930 and passed away on the 26th October 2005, on Bribie Island near Brisbane. My Father's Parents were Charles Edward Moon, born in Armidale on the 1st October 1883, and passed away in Brisbane on the 22nd April 1940. His Wife was Madeline Beatrice Nora Banks (born at 20 Cornwallis Road, Maidstone, Kent, England), on the 19th February 1899). They lived at Obi Obi, inland from Nambour, QLD. Charles's Parents were Charles Lee Sing Moon, born in Gunnedah NSW, in 1858 and passed away in Windsor, Sydney in 1917 due to an accident and Annie Rachael Lambert, born on the 2nd of September 1861 in Sydney, and passed away on the 26th June 1919 in Tamworth NSW. Now we come to the problem area. Charles Lee Sing Moon's Parents were (Yen Chong Moon, born in Canton in 1870 (we think))? While his Wife was (Gee Chong Yeon)? Yen Chong's details I have been able to find are as follows; New South Wales, Australia, Unassisted Immigrant Passenger List, 1826-1922 Name: Yen Chong Born: abt. 1870 Age: 27 Port of Departure: Hongkong Via Port Darvin & Queensland Ports Port of Arrival: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia Voyage Arrival Date: 23 Oct 1897 Vessel Name: Menmuir Origin Location: Canton, China We are unsure about his details as well as his Wife's. I would love to find out more of their past like their Parents etc. But just to obtain their correct details I have would be very helpful indeed. If you are able to assist me please my Father, my Sister and I would be so happy. Kindest regards, Phillip Moon 07-3162 6366

    1. [AUS-CHINESE] Change of mailing list format
    2. Re the reformat of mailing list layout. I dont know if this is permanent. If you post a message / query to a list it will show the lists name as poster not you This could be a real problem particularly for subscribers who take digests ( blocks of rather than single) of messages If anyone wishes to change to single messages just let me know as can easily fix this. 1) if one hits "Reply", the reply message goes only to the sender (in this case you) with your email address in it. It DOES NOT GO TO THE LIST. The reply therefore will not show up in the list archives for future seekers to find and will not be available for future discussion unless the original sender re-posts it to the list. 2) if one selects "Reply All", the reply message WILL get sent to the list. So, to carry on the true value of these lists, to share knowledge, we have to reply to list messages with "Reply All" unless you want your reply to go to the sender only. ================== By using "Reply All" the information is shared with all and items of interest, sources of information is shared with all so aiding research ideas. Happy hunting Bye MargM List Admin
