 Email-a-Friend

The "Email a Friend" option makes it easy to send an email about a specific couple, automatically including their name, dates, and a link to their record in the email that you send.

To:  Fill in a comma-separated list of email addresses to send your message to.  Below the "To" box are email addresses of other researchers -- those listed as sources, as researchers, or as posters of discussion messages for the current couple.  You may optionally check any or all of these to receive the message.  These addresses will appear only for researchers who are logged in to the website.

Note: if any of these addresses bounce, the System Administrator will be notified and these addresses will be cleared out.

My Name:  If you are logged in, this will be filled in with your name; otherwise, you should fill it in so the recipients will know who is emailing them.

My Email:  If you are logged in, this will be filled in with your address; otherwise, you should fill it in so the recipients can reply to you.

Subject:  The subject is filled in with the name of the couple, but this can be edited as needed.

Format:  Either "HTML" or "Plain Text", this controls how the message is formatted.  Some email recipients, including email listserv groups, may not be able to read HTML formatted email, though most people probably can.  When the format choice is changed, the preview of the message changes as well.

Message:  Add any additional message to explain why you are sending this message.  The message will look more or less like you see it on the screen.

The address(es) and the message you type in are not saved.

Besides making it easy for you to communicate with others, this also helps to spread the word about the site, hopefully inspriing others to join in and add more.
