This is a discussion area for anyone who has an interest in genealogy related to the Yoder family (Joder, Jotter, Yeater, Yetter, Yoter, Yother, Yotter,Youter, Youther, Yuter, Yutter, or any other related spelling).

The Yoder Mailing List is sponsored by the Yoder Newsletter (YNL). The newsletter will periodically post Yoder related news items through the list server. Anyone else can also submit items to be seen by other subscribers to the Yoder list server.

The Yoder list server is unmonitored, and its purpose is to exchange information of either current or historic interest. Examples of items which might be appropriate to share would include:

How To :
[ Subscribe ] [ Unsubscribe ] [ Post a message ] [ Search Yoder-L in Rootsweb ] [ Search Yoder-L on website ]

To SUBSCRIBE to the list, send a message to

and put


in the body of the message (not the subject line - anything you put in the subject line is ignored).

To UNSUBSCRIBE, send a message to the same address:

in the body of the message.


To POST a message to the list, send it to the following "List Address":

List Address =

All subscribers will read the messages you send to this address.

Messages from other subscribers will show up in your e-mail mailbox.

It is important to understand the concept of PUBLIC and PRIVATE messages. You respond publicly to the "List Address", or privately to the individual's e-mail address which shows up in the STATUS header near the top of the message. A list server can be a powerful tool for getting the same message out to a lot of people. It can also serve as a starting point for private communications between those with very specific interests. But, don't move into the private domain too quickly. You never know who is reading the public messages and waiting for the very information that you have. When it shows up they will get involved and the list will be that much richer.

To SEARCH the Yoder List Archives within Rootsweb, go to the following URL:

Type Yoder to get into the Yoder listserver area.

Follow instructions. eg. Type "Pennsylvania" (without the quotes) and you will get a list of all messages that contain the word Pennsylvania.
Cool, eh?
