Reminder about vacation settings! #france

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear fellow FrenchSIGgers,

We are getting to vacation time once again, and so your Co-Coordinators
wish to remind you that you must set your SIG subscriptions to NOMAIL,
before you activate you out-of-office, or out of town responders. To do
this you should go to: www.jewishgen.org/listserv/sigs.html
Click on Modify options, and choose the FrenchSIG. When you return you
should do this in reverse, and reset your mail options to your usual
choice. Remember there is no Secretarial Staff at JewishGen . You
must do this for yourself!

If you do not, then every message that is sent out to the list is
returned to the sender! Please be courteous. We all have to deal with
so much spam that this is an extra burden that you put on our other
members.

Thank you,
Rosannne Leeson

Plain Text information from AOL version 9 user requested #germany

GerSig@...
 

JewishGen plans to update the "Support" page on how to set
your email to plain text.

They've asked me if I have any knowledge of AOL v. 9 with
regard to being able to use it to create plain text email.

I seem to remember hearing that like versions 6, 7 and 8,
the current AOL software "improvement" provides no toggle
for switching to plain text.

If any member can provide information on how to set AOL 9
to write plain text email please reply privately to me at:
gersig@aol.com
I will pass the information on to JewishGen. Many thanks.

that the death occurred "Out of City"."

Sam:

I had the same situation occur when researching my ggm. The "Out of City"
reference means that the person died somewhere elese and was brought back to
the city for burial. My ggm was visiting her children in Norwich, CT, when
she had a heart attack and died. She was brought back to NYC and buried in
MT. Zion cemetery in May, 1936.

My ggm's NYC death certificate states that she died in Norwich and gives the
death certificate number. I suggest that you first look at the death
certificate for clues, but absent this information, if you know where the
person was buried - the cemetery (>from the NYC certificate), ask the
cemetery to check their records aand to tell you if they have the actual
place of death, then contact that locale for the death certificate.
