Signature Guidelines for the Discussion Group. #JewishGenUpdates #guidelines

Nancy Siegel

The JewishGen Discussion Group is a lively forum for asking questions and sharing information pertaining to Jewish genealogy.


Because it’s not an anonymous forum, we require each posting and reply to have a “signature”, the first and last name of the sender. Unsigned messages will generally be rejected and sent back to the author for signature. 


You can type in your signature at the end of each message. Or, if you don’t want to have to remember to add your signature each time, you can use the automatic signature feature. See the link below for instructions.


We encourage, but don’t require, that you add your location under your signature. Also, you may choose (but are not required) to add your email address to make it easier for others to contact you directly. 


You may occasionally include under your name some of the surnames and towns you are researching, not to exceed four lines. We recommend, however, that you use JewishGen’s Family Finder for this purpose, instead.
