Hints and Guidelines for Posting

Make sure the Subject: line is meaningful.

A subject such as Family Research is not very meaningful.
Try to use a subject line that is specific, e.g.: 
Researching HINTERMEIER from Untersdorf, Styria


If you are a Digest subscriber, please remember to edit the subject line if you use [Reply] to send an answer.

A subject line such as
Subject: [AUSTRIA-L] Re: AUSTRIA-D Digest V00 #52

is totally meaningless !

 

No off-topic postings please

Austria-L is for genealogy in Austria -- and hundreds of subscribers want it to stay that way. No off topic postings about virus scares, current events, etc.

Always be courteous and polite.

Do not send personal, copyrighted or confidential data via the mailing list.

 

English or German ?

The majority of postings are in English -- but there are bound to be some researchers in Austria that prefer to use their native German language.

Postings may be made in either language. If you don't understand a posting you can try to translate it (or selected words) with a facility such as: http:/translate.google.com/

 

Use CAPS for surnames

Please try to use CAPS for all surnames.

 

Make use of the archives

All postings are automatically archived.

If you ever miss some messages, you can look them up in the Archive.

 

If you want to find a past posting, use the search facility

Please always try to do your homework before posting a query. 

  

 

If you have problems that you cannot resolve in spite of these guidelines, please contact the listowner directly.
