Clinton Co, ILGenWeb has its own mailing list hosted by RootsWeb. The list is made up of members that desire to discuss and exchange genealogical information related to Clinton County, Illinois.

The idea behind the list is that you can send one email and have it automatically forwarded to all the members of the list. As of 7 Feb 2013, there are 177 members.

Emails sent to the list are also permanently archived. These archived messages can be Browsed/Viewed and Searched. We have messages going all the way back to May 1998.

You must be a member of the list before you can send any emails to the list. Don't worry, subscribing to the list is as easy as sending an e-mail.


Before subscribing to the mail list, you should decide which of the two modes you prefer. The regular subscription mode will cause all e-mails sent to the list to be forwarded to you, immediately. The Digest subscription mode collects the e-mails and sends them to you in groups, usually no more often than once a day.


To unsubscribe from the mail list, simply send an email to the request address serving your subscription.

A Note about Spam

We do what we can to protect the list from SPAM and junk emails. The host, Rootsweb, uses filters that block almost all of the junk but occasionally some will slip through. We do monitor and moderate the list so the junk will be removed from the archives.

Additionally, the mailing list software attempts to prevent web robots from harvesting your email address. The software encodes your email address in both the archives and in the emails sent to the subscribers.

For any questions, problems, our help with the mail list, please contact the list administrator (Frankie) at
