    1. [MA-GHOSTTOWNS] GHOST TOWN TALK
    2. Dittmar, Frederick M.
    3. Greetings to all Massachusetts GhostTowners. In order to stimulate my quiet lists I'm writing to ask some questions of you the subscribers. No one on the list bites or says Boo to any questions or comments so feel free to write and talk with others. There are 32 subscribers to this list at the moment. Where do you live? What Ghost Town or area are you interested in? What county was your Ghost Town located in? Are there any remnants left of the town? Foundations? Buildings? Cemeteries? Do you have any information about the time line of the town? Did it have a post office? If a cemetery is there is it currently maintained? Has it been surveyed and is it posted on the internet? What's the link? Do you know if the State has posted a Historic Sign or Marker noting the town or area? Please cite any sources (book, publication, family history) you find the information in. Thank you all. This is your mail list and it only works when you post and others answer and add to it. Fred - Mail List Administrator Frederick M.

    1. [MA-GHOSTTOWNS] New Mail Liat system
    2. Dittmar, Frederick M.
    3. RootsWeb is in the process of switching over to new upgraded list management software. This list has been switched. For list subscribers, the changeover should be smooth. The changes primarily involve the administration tools that keep the list running behind the scenes. The list name is changing from LISTNAME-L to just LISTNAME. So you may subscribe or unsub by sending your request to: LISTNAME-request@rootsweb.com with one exception. If you wish to subscribe in Digest mode you must send your subscribe request to LISTNAME-D-request@rootsweb.com . You may also continue sending your requests as you always have--either will work. The word SUBSCRIBE or UNSUBSCRIBE must be included in the subject and may also be included in the message body. Digest subscribers will notice some changes to the list digests. New instructions will be added to the digests -- please read them. In addition, the digest volume and issue number may be different (out of sequence) from what you had been receiving. If your digests arrive in a different format than you are used to and you would like it changed, contact me privately at the list admin address: LISTNAME-admin@rootsweb.com. Also, if you run into any unusual or confusing occurrences with mail from this list that could possibly be related to the changeover, let me know. If you use email headers to filter list mail to a special folder in your email program you may need to check whether your filters will need tweaking under the new system. If you previously subscribed to the list in both L and D modes using the same email address you will find that you are no longer subbed in Digest mode. The new software doesn't permit the same address to be subbed in both L and D modes. Therefore, if you wish to receive both modes, you will need to subscribe to the digests using a different email address. Please continue to send your queries, data, and responses to the list as usual. It is a great time to post a new query to try to break down those brick walls. Thanks!

    1. Halloween
    2. Diane Sowden
    3. In the spirit of Halloween, from now through Oct. 31 please feel free to post any spooky tales related to your family research. Found a grave with the help of that ancestor? Tell us about it. Share a family tradition with us. What did your ancestor's do for a holiday? A special family recipe? Get your creative juices flowing and share with us today! It works every October and is fun for many list members who may have been afraid to post before. It tends to get them talking anyway! I set the time limit for this topic so that after Oct.31 we can get down to some really good researching... Diane (List mum)

    1. A website that you might be interested in
    2. Diane Sowden
    3. Hiya list, This is from your list mum, Diane FYI -- To those of you with England-based lists, I just ran across a resource which your lists might like to know about if they don't already. Harvard Law School has a collection of English deeds in their library, and these deeds are described on their website, including all names and locations contained therein: <http://www.law.harvard.edu/library/collections/special/collections/manuscri pts/deeds/> There is a small search box on the left-hand side at the bottom. If "HLS website" is clicked, then entering a search term in that box and clicking on "Go" will search those deeds for you (and probably any other pages on their site as well). Some of these deeds mention land in America, but most of them are for land in England. They go back as early as the 1300's and go through at least the latter 1700's. It doesn't appear to be possible to search on just the deeds, so a search on a common name like Lewis will get way too many hits. Adding the term "deed" to your search will help, but there may still be irrelevant results. The deed descriptions are also browseable in the event that the name search isn't fruitful. Please feel free to forward this message in whole or in part to your list(s) if desired. -- Mary Taffet ==== Listowners Mailing List ==== Got suggestions or ideas for new tools and tweaks for admins?

    1. Family reunions
    2. Diane Sowden
    3. Hi List, Did anyone have any family reunions over the summer holidays'? My husband and I went to Yorkshire UK, to find out where his cousin used to live. His cousin was married to a coast guard who use to work at SPURN HEAD near Hull UK. We went over the Humber bridge as well - have any of you done anything interesting yet? Diane (List mum)

    1. Sam River, Massachusetts
    2. My father-in-law Ethan Henry Allen was born in 1910 in Hadley, MA. His father's name was Henry Allen and his birthplace is listed on his son's birth certificate as Sam River, Massachusetts. This place is unknown in every source I have looked in so I conclude it must be a "Ghost town" unless someone out there knows anything about it. It is possible it may have been in New York state or Vermont. David Nicholson Patriotism means supporting your country all of the time, and > your government when it deserves it." > -- Mark Twain >

    1. [MA-GHOSTTOWNS] From List Mom - Comcast buy out
    2. Kathleen Burnett
    3. Dear List Members, If you were effected by the Comcast buy out, then you need to read this, if not delete it. Just this evening, I have receive over 100 requests for me to change e-mail address to a Comcast address. Many of these requests mention multiple lists of which the sender needs their e-mail address changed. It will take me a good week or so to get through them all. My suggestion is; If you still have the ability to unsubscribe go to PASSWORD Central at http://passwordcentral.rootsweb.com/ type in your old e-mail address, and follow the directions. You will receive an e-mail from which you can unsubscribe. If you can't do this, then you will just need to re-subscribe with your new address and let the old one bounce off. To re-subscribe this go to John Fuller's mailing list site http://www.rootsweb.com/~jfuller/gen_mail.html or remember you can subscribe and or unsubscribe by sending only the word UNSUBSCRIBE or SUBSCRIBE to XXXXXX-L-REQUEST@ROOTSWEB.COM or XXXXXX-D-REQUEST@ROOTSWEB.COM if you are on the Digest List. Naturally change the XXXXXX to the name of the list. If all else fails, contact me, but be understanding if it takes me a while to get to you. Kathleen Burnett List Mom
