WAGSnet Mailing List


1. Members Mailing List

About WAGSnet

WAGSnet is a Free Genealogy Mailing List available to current Members of the Western Australian Genealogical Society Inc., and its Affiliated Societies.  Non-members are ineligible for membership of the WAGSnet mailing list.

Subscription to the Mailing List is free to all members who have email access.  It is a convenient way to communicate with other members on the Mailing List and to share views, news and research clues.

WAGSnet is currently facilitated by Google Groups (since June 2008) as a private archived mailing list for members only. We will be moving WAGSnet to come under the umbrella of the WAGS website in the future; there is research currently being undertaken to determine the best method and software to make the move .

Members can change their own contact details and choose how to view emails, particularly if going away. WAGS Members need to contact the Mailing List Convenors (see below) if they wish to join WAGSnet.

Please read the Subscription Instructions and the Do's & Don'ts for posting to WAGSnet below.

WAGSnet Convenors:  Jennifer Lydon and Marilyn Dimond.
