Dear List Members, Due to time constraints I have decided it is best for the NA-PENACOOK list that it be given to a new administrator. I have enjoyed my experiences with the list and the list members very much, but sadly feel that I can no longer give the list the time and supervision it deserves and requires. The new list administrator is Judy White, with whom I am sure many of you are already acquainted. I know she will be an excellent administrator for this list. Thank you all for being such great list members, and for helping one another discover the past. All the best to all of you. Karima
Hello, Due to time constraints I am giving up the NA-PENACOOK Mailing List, which I have administered for many years. I have enjoyed the experience very much, but sadly do not feel that I can devote the time that the list deserves. Thank you all for being such great list members, and for helping one another discover the past. If you are interested in administering this list, please contact me OFF LIST at: firstname.lastname@example.org Karima
This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: jsheuer Surnames: Jenkins Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.ethnic.natam.nations.penacook.penacooknat/5/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I am looking for more info on Reginald Jenkins 1582-1632. Seems he had some strong (friendly) associations with the Penacook shortly before he was killed in a Mohawk raid on the Penacook village he was living in. I found info at http://www.gbnf.com/GENEALOGY/jenkins/html/d0115/I1531.HTM I would like to know more, if possible. This appears to be an ancestor of mine.

Hello List Members, I have just received the following message from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "We are building a new ship which will be stationed in the Piscataqua River. We are currently running a contest for school children to name this new ship (For details, see: http://www.education.noaa.gov/shipname/rules.html . I think it would be wonderful for this ship to be given a name of significance to the Penacook tribe. If you know of any school age Penacook children who might be interested in submitting a name, please let me know. The dead line for this contest is theoretically this Friday, however, if I know we have an application arriving, I can extend this. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If you know of any school age Penacook children who would like to enter this contest, please contact: LCDR Richard Brennan, NOAA Chief, Hydrographic Systems and Technology Program 1315 East-West Highway,SSMC3 N/CS11, Station 7853 Silver Spring, MD, 20910 LCDR Rick Brennan Richard.T.Brennan@noaa.gov ~Karima
Dear PENACOOK Researchers, First of all, I just wanted to say that I hope this New Year of 2007 will be a prosperous and happy one for each and every one of you. Secondly I wanted to give you a status report on the membership of this list. As of this morning there are 47 members subscribed to the list. Traffic on the list has been rather slow of late. It isn't only slow on this list, but most of the lists to which I belong have been very silent for what seems like a very long time. I think this might be a good time to let each other know something about our PENACOOK connections and what information we are looking for, and to try to revitalize our list. Where is everybody? Well, I can only speak for myself, but I suspect that over the past few months many of us have been up to our eyeballs in preparing for the Holidays. Now that they are behind us, and we are embarking on a New Year, we can turn our thoughts and efforts in a different direction. So, let's get back to genealogy. Remember that this list, or any list, can only be as active as the participation of the members. So, take this opportunity to dig through your "sent" mail and see if you can find queries that you posted to the list for which you never received the information you need. Update them with any additional information you might have been able to acquire and then resend you query to the list. If you have any resource books for the PENACOOK, and you feel that you can devote some time to sharing that information, either post some of it to the list, or offer to do limited time lookups for the other members of the list. So, if anyone has a question to ask, or resources to offer, please let us know. This is a good list and in the past lots of helpful information has flown back and forth . . . we just need to get back to it. Just a gentle reminder that it would be helpful if folks would do the following when replying to a post: (1) Remember to change the subject line if the subject being discussed changes. Make the subject line reflect "your" query. (2) Try to keep quoting to a minimum. "Quoting" is repeating text of the message you are replying to. Some quoting is necessary to remind other readers what the thread is about but do try to use good judgment. Quoting the previous writer's signature block or surname list is totally unnecessary Best wishes and good luck with your searches. Karima NA-PENACOOK List Administrator PS, for those of you who are subscribed to other lists I administer, I apologize for the duplication of this message.
Dear NA-PENACOOK List Members, The NA-PENACOOK list has been migrated to the new Rootsweb mailing list system (Mailman). Most of you will notice few if any changes. However, there are a few things you might want to watch out for. While the "migration" of the lists to a new server should process uneventfully for list members, there are a few points that need to be covered: -- AOL USERS (and possibly some other ISPs) Please check your spam folders, and, if you find list mail held as spam, you will need to be sure to click the *THIS IS NOT SPAM* link to send the list mail to your current mailbox. This will "train" the system to understand that mail from this new server is not spam. -- SUBSCRIBERS TO BOTH L and D MAIL MODES If you are subscribed to both L & D mail modes of this list, the new system is not set up to send both to the same email address. If you want to be subscribed in both, it will be necessary to use another email address for your digest mail. If you are subscribed to the list in both mail modes with the same address, you will be dropped from the digest list roster, so if this happens to you, please resubscribe with another address (Yahoo Gmail might be a good choice for an alternate email address). This will not effect those who subscribe in either of the mail modes exclusively. -- POSTING FROM MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT If you want to post from more then one account, just send me the addresses of the extra accounts and I will add them to the Accept List. This means you can *post* from any of those accounts, while *receiving* the list mail from the one you originally used to subscribe. This feature is handy if you want to post from work but would prefer not to receive Rootsweb mail at your place of business. -- ADDRESS TO USE FOR POSTING MESSAGES, SUBSCRIBING, UNSUBSCRIBING The list's email address will change from NA-PENACOOK-L@rootsweb.com to NA-PENACOOK@rootsweb.com however, both addresses SHOULD continue to work for the time being. SUBSCRIBE and UNSUBSCRIBE messages *must* contain the word "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" in the SUBJECT of the message (versus either subject or body, as in the past). In the event you receive an unsubscribe notice and believe it to be in error, please contact me privately at NA-PENACOOKemail@example.com and I'll correct the problem. -- CHANGE IN DIGESTS Digest subscribers may 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: NA-PENACOOKfirstname.lastname@example.org and I will change it back for you. -- FILTERING If you use email headers to filter list mail to special folders, you will probably need to tweak your filters once the new system begins. 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. Thanks in advance to all of you and please don't hesitate to let me know if you need assistance. Also, don't let this migration period keep you from posting to the list. Good luck with your search! Karima NA-PENACOOK List Administrator

This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Surnames: Dustin Classification: Query Message Board URL: http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/msg/rw/oIC.2ACEAE/3 Message Board Post: person selling the ring said it was bought at an estate auction in New Hampshire. I purchased a ring on an on line auction. It is gold, the face is square and has a black back ground, across the top is the name Hannah Dustin, left side has a 19, right side has a 36. Middle of the ring is the statue of Hannah Dustin. Across the bottom it says Penacook. There are 3 initials on the inside B, J and either U, or M. There was something on the other side but has been sized and unreadable. While inquiring about it, I received the following information. Sounds like it may be a Hannah Dustin Rebecca Lodge ring. Stopped by the jewelry store and the jewelry said he thought it was real gold. The reason for the black on the back where the stone is connected was the way that the jewelers put it together, thought maybe made sometime around the 30's to 50's, Ring made by machine not a person. Had to soldier it, apparently no tool cool enough to put it together that wouldn't melt the gold during those years. Apparently the stone, (said it was onyx) is on a plate and then put together. Also said the side that you can't read was sized there. Still no real information on who had it or what it is. I have a picture of the ring if it would help. Please email me if you have any information

Greetings: Well, Halloween is nearly upon us. This provides me with an opportunity to suggest something that may be both fun and useful. Halloween was originally just the day before All Saints Day, November 1. One of the early ideas concerning "All Saints Eve" was that the dead would visit the living, wanting to be remembered. That is certainly more congenial -- to a genealogist, anyway -- than the notion that one might be oppressed by appearances of "ghoulies, ghosties, and long leggedity beasties, and things that go 'bump' in the night." Why not post to the list the name of the ancestor, or other "departed" relative, whom you would MOST want to visit you "from beyond", if that could actually happen? What questions would you ask? Why do you think a conversation with this person would be interesting ... if you could get beyond the see-through bit? What could you say about his or her descendants that might bring joy, or cause pride? Alternatively, what "departed" family member would you LEAST want to have walk through your bedroom wall at midnight? What stories have you heard about this person that cause you to shudder? We are not going to get into a discussion of Halloween itself, please. To me, *ACTUALLY* being visited by a ghost would be anything but desirable. King Saul visited the witch of Endor to try to talk to the prophet Samuel, and it can hardly be said that it worked out well for him ... The intent is to stimulate conversation, and hopefully to have a little fun doing it. (As always, any commentary about the administration of the list must be sent to me, PRIVATELY, and *NOT* to the list itself.)
