The KS-FOOTSTEPS mail list is just beginning on April 2002 and will hopefully become a major part of the KSGenWeb Project.

What is KS-FOOTSTEPS?
This list is the place for you to share your original Kansas source material... wills, deeds, bible records, tax lists, cemetery files, pension applications, obituaries, old letters, marriage lists, etc... with other Kansas researchers.

Please note that queries are not allowed.

How to submit your information
To post your information to the list, send an email to: KS-FOOTSTEPS-L@rootsweb.com

Please follow these guidelines when submitting your information in order for readers to quickly know if it is something they might be interested in reading or want to delete:

In the subject line put:

For instance if your file concerns one individual or surname:

OBIT: Smith, 1903, Seward Co
WILL: Jones, 1878, Norton Co
CENSUS: Brown, 1860-1870, Franklin Co

If your information is a complete list of all available records:

TAX LIST: 1808, Otoe Co

If your information is too large for a single email please submit it showing part numbers:

CEM: St Mary's, Otoe Co, part 1 ( part 2 or # 1 # 2, etc)
MARR: Billings Co, 1860-1880, A's (etc)

If you are unsure of what to use for your subject send me an email.

Is the list archived somewhere?
The digest of the mail list is being placed in the KSGenWeb Archives.

Archives Search Engine
If you don't know which specific region to begin in, the USGenWeb Archives National Search Engine is a good place to start. There you may search by Surname or other key-words.

I hope you enjoy the list!
And please remember...
Queries are not allowed!
