Re: Please put surnames in the subject line

If you are looking only for specific surnames, there is a site on
the Jewishgen website for this.

Anyway, I disagree with your suggestion. I do not care who
is being searched, all overheard conversations can be

Subject: [] Please put surnames in the subject line


I've noticed that since this new format has become available, that the majority of posts do not list surnames in the subject line and sometimes not even in the body of posts.  When fellow contributors see surnames right away, they can quickly determine whether they can be helpful to you.  Further, many will take the time to research for you if they have the names. 

Use tags such as #Belarus as supplements.  For example, today I looked at a post with that tag because my family came from that area. However, if the surnames had been posted, I would have known that I was unable to help.   

Thanks to all who work to make this discussion group helpful to everyone.
