I have created a Mailing List for all Internet users interested in the
Lafontaine Surname and in particular in the Descendants of Jean
Lariou dit Lafontaine, born in St-Pierre ou Mas-d'Agenais, Marmande,
France and the ancestor of many of the Dumont in America. The list resides
on RootsWeb. I am the List
Administrator and a RootsWeb Sponsor.
The LAFONTAINE-L Mailing List
If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a mailing list, the idea
is that once you subscribe, all messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
will be automatically sent to all people who have subscribed (including
If you are ready to subscribe and to send a test message, use one of
the links at the bottom of this page.
- Messages may be posted in French or in English. English is understood
by 95% of the subscribers and is the preferred language. A translation
would be a nice touch.
- Messages should be of a general nature like research questions
and answers or an announcement of a new site that you have found interesting.
- Messages directed to a single individual (like me) should not be
sent to the list
- It is perfectly acceptable to subscribe to the list even if you
never expect to send a message. The hope is that one day you may have
the answer to someone's question and your answer will be invaluable.
- Messages larger than 20 KB will be refused. Do not use this list
to circulate GEDCOM files or large pictures.
