Re: Hashtag

Dahn Cukier

Thank you for the link, I am adding it here too.

The article is about various social networks, but not mailing lists..

I am still confused by 2 subjects floating around, but connected.

1) If hastag, do I hashtag both John and Doe, or do I need to write
both John Doe and #Johndoe? Some search engines will not find
JohnDoe as John Doe, others will not find JohnDoe
if it is written #JohnDoe - depending on the setups.

2) Which country do I use in Subject. What if I do not know which country a location was
a part of. Yugoslavia or Serbia?
To use today's geography, I will use my own location. Am I living
in Israel, Palestine, West Bank (or WestBank), or Jordan? Do I need to know
which year Jordan gave up the annexed West Bank and the same area
became either Yehuda or maybe Samaria? Do people know where the
border between Yehuda and Samaria is located?

The signature is from an episode of Gunsmoke that I found relevant
to genealogy where I have found mistakes not only in indexing, but
various dates and name spellings on original official documents.

I'm a 74 year old with 3 decades of PC usage but never fully got into the social media thing (maybe a toe but not both feet).  I too don't know how best to deploy a hashtag.  It's seems quite searchable and I found this site on the general usage.
I wonder though if usage on the JewishGen Discussion Group has specific idiosyncrasies. 
I'm a novice in posting items so I'm not sure if this is going only to Shelley or the entire world of JG.
If the latter, maybe some experienced hashtagger could OK the searched article and indicate how it'd work here.
