Subject: NEW: GEDCOM-L - GEnealogical Data COMmunications

         or LISTSERV@vm1.nodak.edu

   The GEDCOM-L list is for the discussion of most any info pertaining
   to the enhancement of the GEnealogical Data COMmunications (GEDCOM)
   data format.

   It is an unmoderated list for the discussion of ideas concerning how
   Genealogical Data is now stored in GEDCOM data files, and how GEDCOM
   may be changed or enhanced to help programmers take advantage of the
   many new ways to interface their paper files with a computer program
   which will handle all their information, and store it in a useful

   Topics such as standardization in the future will be a main concern,
   and any reasonable suggestions are welcome.  This list is open to
   anyone wishing to SUBSCRIBE and especially those who are developers
   of Genealogical Software.  Discussion of topics specific to the
   problems of the current specifications, and why there are so many
   different 'so-called' standards at present, are encouraged.  Topics
   on this list may include any aspects of the GEDCOM Data format and
   its development for future users of Genealogical software..

   Archives of GEDCOM-L are kept in weekly files.  You may obtain a
   list of those files by sending the command


   in the BODY of e-mail to LISTSERV@NDSVUM1 when using BITNET or to
   LISTSERV@vm1.nodak.edu on the Internet.

   To subscribe, send the following command in the BODY of mail to
