    1. [JENKS]Jenks mailing list is back in operation
    2. Mary D. Taffet
    3. Hello subscribers, You may be aware that some time ago, most of Rootsweb was taken offline so that the software, and perhaps the hardware, running the various resources could be upgraded.  The mailing lists have been back for a while now, under new mailing list software. For this new system, you will have to re-register in order to send a message to the mailing list, unless you have already done so since March.  Instructions for re-registering can be found here: <http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/listsHelp> The old mailing list archives will be restored at some point, but once there are new messages to archive, the new mailing list archive will be created and functional. I invite all mailing list subscribers to post their research interests for the Jenks surname. -- Mary D. Taffet    List admin for JENKS mailing list

    3. Hello subscribers, Due to a major change in how message board posts are formatted and sent, the gatewayed message board posts that are now being addressed to the mailing lists are no longer being delivered easily. Until the system gets changed so that it can handle the new message format of emailed message board posts, I have little choice but to simply post a link to any new message board posts here to the list. The following link: <http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.jenks/565/mb.ashx> leads to a message with the subject line "Winfield Jenks". If you wish to read the message, please click on the link. Hopefully they'll get this sorted out before too long... -- Mary D. Taffet List admin for JENKS
