Discussion Forums and Mailing Lists for the FreeREG Project

Discussion Forums The The FreeREG Discussion Forums are open to all.

These forums are for:

  • general discussion relating to the FreeREG Project
  • questions from volunteers relating to data entry, etc.
  • questions from those using the database to do searches

Any person can view the posts made to the FreeREG discussion Forums. However to post a comment or question you must first register with British Genealogy. Please follow their instructions on how to register. The difference between these Forums and the mailing lists discused below is primarily the method of access. With the discusion Forums you must vist the site to see the information. With mailing lists you will receive an e-mail of the the posting at the time of posting. Also you can search the archives of earlier posts. The members of both Forums and lists will certainly be different and there is likely some limited duplication of information.

FREEREG The FREEREG mailing list is open to all.

It is for:

  • general discussion relating to the FreeREG Project
  • questions from volunteers relating to data entry, etc.
  • questions from those using the database to do searches

It is not for posting questions about how to conduct research generally, or requests for information on your ancestors. Flaming and argument is not allowed, and advertising is not allowed, and people doing that will simply be removed from the list of subscribers. Do not try to moderate the list or respond to flaming. That is the List Owner's job. Frequently asked questions on the list, with their answers,  may be subsequently posted on our FreeREG FAQ web pages.
