20 februari 2000. Betreft: BUILDING THE HOLDING XI Kenmerk: JH/LH20000220. Querida Isabel, Zondag 20 februari 2000. Ik ontving het volgende bericht om 11.06 van Mail Delivery Subsystem <MAILER-DAEMON:


The original message was received at Sun, 13 Feb 2000 11:52:19 +0100 from infovia178.grn.es []: The following addresses had transient non-fatal errors <info@vrijvoortwee.nl> Transcript of session follows 451 <info@vrijvoortwee.nl>... vrijvoortwee.nl: Name server timeout. Warning: message still undelivered after 4 hours. Will keep trying until message is 5 days old. Reporting-MTA: dns; t1000.grn.es. Arrival-Date: Sun, 13 Feb 2000 11:52:19 +0100. Final-Recipient: RFC822; info@vrijvoortwee.nl. Action: delayed. Status: 4.4.3. Last-Attempt-Date: Sun, 13 Feb 2000 15:54:42 +0100. Will-Retry-Until: Fri, 18 Feb 2000 11:52:19 +0100. Voorts heb ik mij aangemeld bij SPENCER-L@rootsweb.com. Ik kreeg van hen de volgende bevestiging: You have added to the subscriber list of: SPENCER-L@rootsweb.com the following mail address: nblew@grn.es By default, copies of your own submissions will be returned. Welcome to the SPENCER mailing list! You are currently subscribed in "mail mode", which means that you will receive every posting made to SPENCER as a separate e-mail. The directions on how to change to digest mode are given below.

1. How to unsubscribe. Send a message to


that contains (in the body of the message) the command unsubscribe and no additional text.

2. How to subscribe. Whatever you just did worked, or you'd not be getting this message. But for future reference (for instance, if your subscription is cancelled for whatever reason and you want to resubscribe), just send the command "subscribe" to SPENCER-L-request@rootsweb.com.

3. How to change to digest mode (several postings are combined and sent to you together as a single large message). There are two steps. First, send the command "unsubscribe" to SPENCER-L-request@rootsweb.com to discontinue mail mode. Second, send the command "subscribe" to SPENCER-D-request@rootsweb.com to start receiving digests.

4. How to change to NOMAIL mode. There is no formal NOMAIL mode. All you have to do is follow the directions above and unsubscribe when you want the messages to stop, and then when you want them to start again, simply subscribe again.

5. If you'd like to post a message so everyone on the mailing list receives it, just send it to SPENCER-L@rootsweb.com. It will then be sent on to everyone in both mail and digest mode. You don't need to send it explicitly to both. For your verification, a transcript of the original subscription request is included below.

Dear Sirs, I was told that the Spencers were related to the Van der Heydens already in the middle ages. Therefore I like to have their family-trees. Thank you very much, John L. Van der Heyden Spain.

Zo heb ik berichten doorgekregen op 19/2 04:06, 19:57, 18:21, 19:27, 19:32, 21:21, 21:35, 22:20,; 20/2 00:20, 00:38, 01:41. Ze komen vrijwel allemaal uit de Verenigde Staten. Het aardigste bericht is dat van 19:27 van Barbara Bealll: The Post Office proved to be "my best friend" again today with the arrival of two more envelopes. One came from the Spencer Society. The other came from the same person who sent me the envelope full of material earlier in the week. I glanced through this person's second package and jumped up and down when I saw what it contained. That material is old and hard to read, and it was obtained at the Tennessee State Archives in Nashville. But, it is the first actual documentation I have been able to acquire in writing stating that John Spencer (Sheriff of Maury County) had a daughter named Susannah, or Susan (the name she actually used)! The material also ties in Thomas Sharpe Spencer (a/k/a "Big Foot") with this family! There is so much of information here, I think I am going to write an addendum to my Spence/Spencer article on Rootsweb. Instead of pulling that material in a month (as I planned to do)--I'm going to add this information and then leave that article on the website for another six months. Plus--I have acquired new information from my own research that I plan to incorporate. And while I am at it, I think I will add all of the South Carolina research I had previously undertaken--plus the Connecticut Spencer material I have also acquired. So, this addendum is going to be another full section to the material already posted. I will let you know when it is available.

Home Page and for Access to Website: http://mail.ancestry.com/ancestry/users/bibeall Ik denk dat ik mijn Letters to Diana ook maar op deze mailinglist moet zetten. Dan is mijn probleem in één klap opgelost. Ik zal hiermee wachten tot aanstaande donderdag. Als ik dan nog niets van je heb gehoord per email of anderszins, ga ik ervan uit dat je daarmee accoord gaat. Graag ontvang ik ook op korte termijn de emailadressen van de leden van de Baak-kring. Ik zal ze niet gebruiken vóór 1 juni van dit jaar. Hartelijke groet, JOHANNES L. VAN DER HEYDEN ESPAÑA P.S. Bijgaand briefje kreeg ik van ene Manon Bakker op de luchthaven van Málaga. Zij heeft daar enige tijd gewerkt en wil ons behulpzaam zijn bij de organisatie van het Congres. Tijd: 13.16.
