There is an e-mail discussion list, called the KS-KIN-L, which is one of over four hundred lists at the University of Kansas. You may join this list and e-mail the discussion group, receiving a copy of all e-mails sent to the list. This allows many people to put a surname of question about genealogy/ancestors in Kansas on the list with the opportunity to receive an answer from any person who belongs to the list.
To join the Kansas-Kin Mailing List,
just do the following:
Use the e-mail icon in the upper-right of this page and send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (NOTE - CAUTION: If you are not where you will normally pick up your e-mail, don't send your subscription from this computer as the list will only recognize e-mails to the list from the computer the original request subscription is sent from.)
In the message part of the e-mail, type: SUBSCRIBE KS-KIN-L YourName
Substitute your name for the YourName.
For example, I would have typed: SUBSCRIBE KS-KIN-L Pat Adams
Click on the Send button to send your e-mail.
The List Processor will respond to your e-mail and put you on the list, giving you any needed direction to unsubscribe or how the list is handled. Enjoy!
NOTE: There is another discussion group
called the KANSAS-L list. Don't mistake this one for the KS-KIN-L list.
The KANSAS-L list deals with anything related to Kansas (gun control, recipes,
history, current events, etc.) You can end up with numerous miscellaneous
e-mails from the KANSAS-L list, which is fine if that is what you are looking
for. The KS-KIN-L list is the GENEALOGY discussion group and if people
post other items (other than genealogy) to the KS-KIN-L list, the subscriber
The KsGenWeb now has a message board that you can enter and view information/queries from. Just click on the inkwell and you'll be there.
