Mailing Lists

The LAFONTAINE-L Mailing List

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. 

If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a mailing list, the idea is that once you subscribe, all messages sent to will be automatically sent to all people who have subscribed (including you).

If you are ready to subscribe and to send a test message, use one of the links at the bottom of this page

 List Etiquette:

  • 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.
