EMAIL LISTSERV


Welcome to the BDO-RIG email listserv of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society (GRHS). Please save this message for future reference. This list is powered by Mailman, which is managed through a web-based interface, and is operated in accordance with the by-laws of the GRHS.

This mailing list is provided by the Germans from Russia Heritage Society. This is a closed list, meaning membership is by INVITATION ONLY.

We welcome "GUESTS" (those who are not members of GRHS yet) to join our listserv on a trial basis of one (1) year. At the end of the year, if the "guest" has not yet joined the GRHS, they will be automatically unsubscribed. We hope that everyone finds membership in the GRHS a valuable resource in your family history research. Information about the GRHS and how to join can be found at http://www.grhs.org/aboutus/aboutus.html

We hope that your association with this research discussion group will be fruitful and enjoyable. We recognize the need to bring together those people interested in the collection, publication and preservation of our heritage as Germans from Russia. We will foster the preservation of folklore, songs, literature, objects of art, genealogies, photos, documents and all applicable records and do all the other necessary work to carry out the objectives of GRHS and the BDO RIG.

If you are researching the families of the Beresan area of South Russia and would like to become a member of this listserv, please contact
Valerie Renner Ingram

When you receive your invitation, please follow the directions contained in the message about your self-introduction. Once that's received, we'll get you signed on!
