    3. Rootsweb mailing lists are automatic and are managed by list robots. These robots take care of subscription requests and bouncing (rejected) emails. The most frequently asked question of subscribers is: ***************** "Why have I been unsubscribed?" Answer: If your list mail cannot be delivered for any reason, the list robot unsubscribes you after a certain number of failed attempts. (For the COOK-ISLANDS list the maximum member bounce score is: 3) This can happen for a number of reasons - some of the more common reasons are that your mailbox is full, your spam filter is blocking the list mail, your ISP is blocking list mail from Rootsweb, you have put an automatic responder on your email.... If you were unsubscribed and did not wish to be taken off the mailing list, simply subscribe again. However be forewarned that if whatever caused the list robot to unsubscribe you the first time is still happening, it will simply remove you again after a specific number of bounces--3--(rejected list mail to your email address). But as a courtesy to all COOK-ISLANDS listers, I can re-subscribe you manually. Just let me know. ****************** Other questions asked are: "How do I unsubscribe?" Answer: Simply follow the instructions at the bottom of every list mail message. ****************** "Why is my mail not getting to the mailing list?" Answer: Make sure that you are sending from the same email you are subscribed under. The list robot does not recognize names. It only recognizes email addresses. If your sending email address is not on the subscriber list, your email will be rejected. ****************** "Why am I not getting list mail?" Answer: Check the HelpDesk notices in the yellow box for announcements about any technical problems with Rootsweb mail. http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ If you don't find the answer to your problem on the HelpDesk page you need to check if you are still subscribed to the list. You can get a list of all your subscribed to mailing lists from Password Central: http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ If Password Central doesn't include all lists to which you should be subscribed, re-subscribe to any lists that are missing from your subscribed lists by sending a new e-mail to: LISTNAME-request@rootsweb.com (replacing the word LISTNAME with the actual list name). Put only the word SUBSCRIBE in the subject and message body of your e-mail. ****************** Should anyone need further elaboration then you may give me--Yours Truly--a contact. GRIN --Manaia [List-Admin] COOK-ISLANDS-admin@rootsweb.com My gratitudes to Lorine McGinnis Schulze for sharing.

    3. November 17, 2008 Online Genealogy Dictionaries and Lists I have been collecting URLs (Web addresses) of various online dictionaries and lists that are useful to genealogists. These are useful when trying to decode foreign or obsolete words often found in genealogy work. Here are a few of my favorites: The Encyclopedia of Genealogy: http://www.eogen.com (Disclaimer: This is a site that I created but the data has been created by many different people. In fact, you can also add data to the Encyclopedia of Genealogy.) Abbreviations Found in Genealogy: FamilySearch has an extensive list at https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/Abbreviations_Found_in_Genealogy_Records. Other lists may be found at : http://www.rootsweb.com/~rigenweb/abbrev.html and http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~sam/abbr.html and http://www.genealogy.com/Glossary/glossary.html and http://www.geisheimer.org/info/gene/abbr.htm A List of Occupations, many of which are archaic.

    1. [Cook-Islands] NZ artist wins residency in Samoa

    3. NZ artist wins residency in Samoa Posted at 23:00 on 27 July, 2008 UTC A New Zealand Cook Islands based, Maori visual artist will be working with artists in Samoa for three months, having won a residency to Apia. Jim Vivieaere is the recipient of the 2008 Creative New Zealand Pacific Arts Committee and National University of Samoa Artist in Residence award. Stephen Wainwright, the Chief Executive of Creative New Zealand, says Jim Vivieaere has been a pivotal figure in the visual arts community for more than 20 years and is highly regarded as an artist, curator and advisor. Mr Vivieaere says he was inspired to apply for the residency while working in Cuba on a movie about Robert Louis Stevenson’s last years in Samoa, and wanted to contextualise that experience. “I’ve always made oblique references to my Pacific Islandness, you know, A) because I was born here and sociologically totally European and so instead of doing the motifs and the iconic Pacific imagery, in times i’ve just used water, you know Pacific ocean water to mix temper up.” Jim Vivieaere says he’s looking forward to working with some Samoan artists. http://www.rnzi.com/pages/news.php?op=read&id=41117 .... --Manaia [Cook-Islands Admin]

    1. [Cook-Islands] RARATONGA
    2. Hello: Happy to have found this group. My husband's grandmother's sister was a Sister of St. Joseph of Cluny. Her name was Rose Pillion {Sr.Kieran Pillion} . She died on Raratonga in 1921 after being a teacher there for 14 years. A memorial was erected by her students after she died and when I wrote to the order, they sent me books and they went out to the cemetery and took a picture of the memorial stone. Sr. Kieran was from Ferbane, County Offaly, Ireland. We have always wanted to get out to Raratonga. What a story this would make if she had left a diary of her experiences. Nice to know that she was remembered. She never was able. to return to Ireland. She was sent briefly to a larger island {can't remember which one} to seek medical assistance for a heart condition but she died shortly after returning to Raratonga.

    1. [Cook-Islands] [ADMIN] Welcome!
    2. Manaia Alofa
    3. Welcome! I am Manaia, the list administrator for Rootsweb's COOK-ISLANDS mailing list. You can contact me personally at COOK-ISLANDS-admin@rootsweb.com. A mailing list for anyone with a genealogical interest in the Cook Islands, a self-governing democracy consisting of a group of islands in the South Pacific Ocean about half way between Hawaii and New Zealand. I give a wide latitude to list discussion because I believe that the list is here as a research tool for you, the subscriber. However there some things that should not be posted to the list: 1. Remember that all messages to the list are archived by Rootsweb and can be seen by *anyone* at any time by clicking on the Archives link on the Rootsweb home page. Keep that in mind and look your message over carefully before clicking on "Send". If you wouldn't want your mom, spouse, best friend, or clergyperson reading what you wrote, you probably should send the message privately. 2. E-Mail Forwards that are Virus-warnings, Jokes, Chain Letters, etc., no matter how dire, funny or how worthy the cause. If you think the list needs to hear about it, then please email me personally for my thoughts. 3. Flames or rude emails critizing another subscriber's posting. If someone makes a mistake and it is a problem, I will take care of it. This is a list for including people, not excluding them. We need to all work together to solve our research problems. "Remember to post your lines often! Connections can't be made if we don't post." Again, Welcome and Enjoy!
