Newsletter - January 2017

In January, I decided that it was time to set up a more professional system to circulate the Newsletters as, quite apart from the problems with using Rootsweb as a mailing system, I did not receive any feedback about whether all the email addresses on my Contact List actually still worked!


So I have set up a much more efficient system using Mail Chimp ... and to test the system out I sent out the following message to the 107 addresses on my Contact List at the end of January 2017:

"Over the past few months, there have been some problems with the Rootsweb Mailing List which I have been using to notify members of the Adamthwaite Archive of developments.  So I am trying out a mail delivery service using Mail Chimp.


You can still use the ADAMTHWAITE mailing list at Rootsweb if you wish to start a discussion with other Adamthwaite researchers about your own research, or seek help from others on the list. However, as you have previously asked to be kept informed of progress on our one-name study, I hope  you will accept these occasional emails to let you know when there is a new Newsletter on the website or any other new items of interest.  You can of course unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link at the foot of this email.


I am currently working  on the next Newsletter - if you have recently made any exciting discoveries about your own Adamthwaite ancestors, please do let me know so we can share your news with your Adamthwaite cousins.


Wishing you all a Happy New 2017"

I'm delighted to say that no one unsubscribed and there were only eight addresses that 'hard bounced' - I gather this means they are no longer functioning - so these have been removed.  


If you aren't already on the mailing list but would like to receive notifications when I produce a new Newsletter, just click on the 'Calling all Adamthwaites' link on the left and complete the form to request that your name is added to the Contact List.  It is very helpful if you can use the form to tell me how you connect to the Adamthwaites, especially which Adamthwaite line you belong to!


With best wishes
