|The Pickens Mailing List on Rootsweb...|
Pickens County is a fascinating part of North Georgia history, from the late
1700's when it was home to Cherokee families until current times as the
marble industry plays a significant part in lives of the local people. It
evolved from Cherokee Nation to Cherokee County, Georgia -- and then Gilmer
County, until the official creation of Pickens County on December 5, 1853.
The original historian of Pickens County, Luke E. Tate, stated in the
preface of History of Pickens County (first published in 1935): "In Georgia
there are older counties than Pickens, and there are counties that are
larger, or wealthier, or more populous. But I do not think there is any
other county that is richer in the traditions of its common people or in the
spiritual heritage of its pioneers."

The GAPICKEN-L Mailing List is an e-mail list aimed at furthering genealogical research for those whose families might have pioneered--settled in--or just passed through this area of the North Georgia mountains.
GAPICKEN-L is for individual messages to be delivered to your e-mail address. As each subscriber to the list sends messages to the list address, you will receive a copy of the message.
To subscribe send an e-mail message
GAPICKEN-D is for a digest of several accumulated messages to be delivered to your email address. As each subscriber to the list sends messages to the list address, they are put into a digest to be delivered later. The digest is generated approximately once a day and delivered to digest subscribers. This option is handy for people who don't want multiple messages to accumulate in their mail box.

Do NOT use a signature file attached to the e-mail message. The software reads your message and tries to answer each command it finds. When it runs across your signature file it gets a bit confused and will send you a message stating something like 'Do not recognize command 'Jones'. Do not recognize command "Smith", etc.
