What is an e-mail list?
An e-mail list is a group of people who are interested in the same thing who come together to share their stories, information, hopes and dreams. Individuals send messages to a single e-mail address and it is automatically distributed to all members of that list. You can receive these messages as individual e-mails or put together in digest form. For lists with a large number of members or postings digest may be better. (You can change your settings at any time if you aren’t sure about this now.)
To join simply click on the links below which should open an e-mail please put subscribe in the body of the e-mail. In order to access e-mail archives for the AFTH lists you will need to have a YahooID. Go to yahoogroups.com, click on the link that says “new users click here to register” and follow the simple instructions.*
