PLEASE READ: Multiple Digest Issues

Nancy Siegel

We understand that many of you are frustrated with receiving multiple digests on the same day. The current default setting of “Full Feature Digest” compiles up to 12 messages together and then sends them as one Digest email. When more than 12 messages and replies are sent to the Group, more than one Digest will automatically be created. We will explore if there are ways to modify this and will get back to you. In the meantime, your patience is greatly appreciated as we are taking all of your suggestions and recommendations into consideration.


Other options of delivery currently available are: 


Individual Messages - each message sent separately to you

Daily Summary - an index delivered each morning of the group’s messages posted the prior day; subject line only, not the full message

Special Notices Only - sent occasionally by the Group’s Moderator


If you want to change to one of the other above options, at the top of the Digest page there should be an option, under the green banner, to “edit your subscriptions, here.” If that doesn’t appear on your page, you can change your subscription settings by clicking on “View/Reply Online” found after each message, then clicking on “Subscription” on the left-hand side of the page. Or by clicking on “Unsubscribe Here” at the bottom of the digest page. This will bring you to a page where you can click on the delivery option you want.


On a related topic, there have been no changes to the SIG Groups.

Thank you,

I suspect that once the focus of messages in this discussion group turns back to genealogy and away from the new format, the digests will likely dwindle to one a day. Before the change, there were rarely more than 12 posts in a daily digest.
