RootsWeb: Genealogy Mailing Lists: GEN-NEWBIE: "Topic: where people who are new to computers and genealogy may interact using a computer's email program. It's like a bouncing ball, with someone asking a question and others suggesting answers, or asking more questions. The list discusses genealogy, family history, computer applications, and a wide variety of other topics with a goal of assisting anyone who wants 'community coaching' about the Internet, genealogy, computers, or whatever. To subscribe, send the following to subscribe

Gen-Newbie started as an electronic mailing list for people who were new to computers and/or genealogy, to ask questions, help others, and generally share information, research techniques, brick walls, and computer/genealogy woes.

We began, officially, on October 31, 1996, as an offshoot of the renowned Roots-L. Since then we have gained over 1,000 members, a unique community that supports the honest and open newbie questions in a flame-free, tolerant atmosphere concerning genealogy/computers.
