I rarely receive the SIG digests anymore.

When I click on the 'View all your groups.jewishgen.org' or 'Edit your subscriptions here' links I see the only thing I seem subscribed to is "Main".

And on that screen i was sent to I can find no way to add or check on my SIG subscriptions. I am posting this topic on the Main list because I am sure a lot of people would like to know the answer. The last message I sent to support only got me a default form reply with a link that did not accept either my new or old jewishgen passwords. So I gave up.

Please don't send me another default response because I cannot access the reply. My passwords don't work. Please just answer my question on the Main list so I and the many others in my position can benefit.

Thank you!

The SIGs are still where they have been all along - accessible via the JewishGen home page.  The link on the groups page is strictly for this group.  Traffic on all the SIG Discussion Group pages has been extremely light for the past few weeks, but they are still here.  Nothing has changed in the way you access all other discussion groups on JewishGen.  They are still on the old platform.

But it's a little more complicated than that. The JewishGen home page
has a new design. In order to find information about the SIGs or your
subscriptions, click on any of the headings except "Home" or "Blog",
and you will see the familiar headings of the old home page.

There is something seriously wrong with the SIGs since the new website was introduced, and I’m sorry, but being told over and over that nothing has changed simply isn’t acceptable.

To see if it is true that there hasn’t been much activity in the SIGs, I clicked on the GermanSIG link and then clicked on the GermanSIG news archive link.  It shows the last posting as “ 08/05/2019  IAJGS Conference in Cleveland Activity Summary”   Seriously ???  Nothing since 5 August ???   If there have been messages in the last two and a half months, where can I find them?

Next, I clicked on the DNASIG.  It takes you to a page that does not even pretend to have a link to archived news items.  If news items from the DNASIG can be retrieved, where are they hidden?  I’d like to know whether I have missed some or whether there haven’t been any for several weeks.  Why is that so difficult?
