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:

  1. From the main page, click on “Request New Password” just below the login area.

  • Enter your YahooGroups username or the email address registered on YahooGroups ranchos.
  • Click on e-mail new password.
  • You will receive an email with your new password.
  • Log on with your YahooGroups username and the password received in the email.
  • Click on “My account” (Second or third sidebar menu item)
  • Click on the “Edit” tab and enter new password (in both fields provided) and click submit.
  • 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.
  • Review the information in the Personal Information category. Enter your name, location and geographic areas and surnames of research.
  • Review the Mailing Lists settings, and subscribe to the mailing lists per the instructions below. This is very important. If you do not sign up for the mailing lists, any messages that you post will not get distributed to the group!

    Instructions for signing up for the mailing lists is as follows:

    1. Click on the mailing lists menu option on the right hand menu or 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(at), research(at), or announce(at)
