The Yahoo Group: Ranchos will be closing on 31 March 2005



After that time the message email distribution functionality for the
YAHOO group will be discontinued. In it's place is the beautiful site
that Arturo Ramos, our webmaster, has built: http://NuestrosRanchos.com



If you haven't requested a password for the site go here and follow the
following instructions:

Please DO NOT create a
new account. Your account is already
set up with your YahooGroups userid but you will have to request a new
password in order to log in. The new password will be sent to the email
registerd on your YahooGroups account and once you receive your
password you can log and change it to whatever they like. In order to
do this:

    the login area.

    on YahooGroups ranchos.

    in the email.

  7. Click on the “Edit” tab and enter new password (in both fields
    provided) and click submit.
  8. Review other information in the Account Settings category.
    Change your language, time zone, etc. as necessary. Please do NOT
    change your email address. During the transition, the email addresses
    registered on this site and on YahooGroups must match or messages will
    be rejected by one site or another. This restriction will be lifted
    once the transition is complete.
  9. Review the information in the Personal Information category.
    Enter your name, location and geographic areas and surnames of
    research.
  10. Review the Mailing Lists settings, and subscribe to the mailing
    lists per the instructions below.

    click on the mailing lists menu item when editing your account in step
    8 above.
  2. Click on the type of subscription you would like for each of
    the three mailing lists. You must initially subscribe to receiving all
    email or daily digests. Once you have gone confirmed your subscription
    (next step) you can change back your settings to “No Email” which
    allows you to send messages to the list but not receive any messages
    from the list, i.e. you will be able to read messages only by going
    onto the website.
  3. You will receive a message asking for confirmation of your
    email address for each of the mailing lists to which you subscribe. If
    you sign up for all three, you will receive three separate messages.
    Simply reply to each message to confirm your subscription.
  4. Once you have registered for a list, the messages that you
    post will get distributed to the group. You can post in any of the
    three Forums or via email to any one of the three lists and the
    messages will automatically get posted to the website and get
    distributed to those signed up for the new Nuestros Ranchos list as
    well as the old YahooGroups list. The posting addresses are
    general@nuestrosranchos.com, research@nuestrosranchos.com, or
    announce@nuestrosranchos.com.
