When posting a query on a message board, and to
garner the most success, try to be as concise as

"searching for family," "need help," "genealogy,"

You have your choice of several message boards and email
lists for Boone County. For the best possibility of making a
connection or receiving a reply to your query, use all of
them. Make sure you always check off the box that says,
"notify me when someone responds." You'll then receive an
email notification when someone replies, even if it's months
later. If your email address changes, make sure to update it
on all the message boards and lists you've ever used, so you'll
never miss a reply. Better yet, use a free email account

to change your address with every list and mutual researcher
you've corresponded with in the past, if your regular home
email changes. Then your genealogy email
address will never change, no matter how often your regular
home address changes. Another plus - you'll receive a LOT
less spam on your home email account!
