soc.genealogy.medieval      Genealogy in the period from roughly
                            AD 500 (or earlier) to AD 1600

NOTE:     This is not a Call for Votes. Do not try to vote now.
          Followups set to news.groups; please honor. See the
          "Procedure" section, below, for details.

Charter:

soc.genealogy.medieval is for genealogy and family history
discussion among people researching individuals living during
medieval times, as well as related topics.  The primary focus of
the group is likely to be on Europe and neighboring regions, but
postings about genealogy in other areas during this time period
are welcomed.  The medieval period is loosely defined for the
purposes of this group as the period extending from the breakup
of the (Western) Roman Empire until the time public records (such
as church, tax, and census records) relating to the general
population began to be kept. This period would extend roughly
>from AD 500 to AD 1600, but these limits are not intended to
exclude related topics of discussion lying outside of these
boundaries.

The group is open to anyone with an interest in genealogy in the
time period in question, including, but not limited to: royal and
noble descents, origins of American colonists, feudal descent of
property, value of pre-historical sources (such as sagas),
adoption of surnames and arms by families, source availability
and reliability, and reviews and correction of published works.

The group is open to discussions of other related topics falling
outside the boundaries of the period, such as the genealogy of
modern nobility and genealogical links to antiquity.  On the
other hand, postings of a general historical or cultural nature
which are completely unrelated to genealogy are not welcome even
when falling within the medieval period.

Rationale:

The scope of the group reflects the different nature of
genealogical research in the medieval period.  Vital records and
census records are not available for this period, and the
researcher must rely instead on records of inheritance of
property or tenancy, heraldic visitations, monastic charters,
chronicles, onomastic evidence, and even numismatic evidence.
There is a long history of study of the medieval period by
genealogists of variable reliability, with much of the older
incorrect work still in general circulation.  More recent work
has often appeared in obscure journals; sometimes it is in
languages other than English.  The group is intended to address
all these various facets.  As with the available sources, posts
may be in any language but will probably be understood by the
largest audience if in English.  All posters are encouraged to
provide references for genealogical information presented, and to
present lineages in as condensed a format as will still convey
the necessary information.

While there are significant differences between countries for
genealogical research after the medieval period, the differences
are less pronounced during the medieval period, especially in
Europe and neighboring regions, because of substantial
similarities in social and legal structures, the pervasiveness of
the Christian Church, the widespread use of Latin as an official
language, frequent changes in national boundaries, and
intermarriages between royal families.  In addition, the amount
of genealogical material available for a given area is much
smaller for the medieval period than for the modern.  For these
reasons it is plausible at least initially to conduct discussions
in a single group (with no geographic subdivisions).

Background:

The number of postings on medieval topics in soc.genealogy.misc
has been substantial.  From the beginning of Dec. 1994 through
7 Mar. 1995, out of a total of 3689 posts there were 231
medieval posts (not counting an additional 19 posts about the
idea of starting a soc.genealogy.medieval newsgroup).  During
the one-month period from 6 Feb. through 7 Mar. almost 10% of
the postings were on medieval topics.

Mailing List Gateway and Archive:

It is our intention that the group will be gated to a mailing
list for genealogists who do not have access to Usenet.  The gate
is expected to be two-way, so that messages posted on either side
will also appear on the other side.  It is also our intention
that the content of the postings shall be archived and made
researchable via FTP-mail or other such means.  (Both the mailing
list and the archive are now being arranged.)

Supporters of this Proposal:

This proposal is being supported by the following people.  We
encourage you to participate in the discussions in news.groups.

Distribution of RFD:

The complete official messages - RFD, CFV and vote results will
be posted to these required or affected newsgroups:

       news.announce.newsgroups, news.groups,
       soc.genealogy.computing (in accordance with s.g.c charter)

   and to interested newsgroups and mailing lists:

       alt.genealogy,
       [email protected],
       [email protected],
       [email protected]

A short "pointer" message will be sent to other groups and
mailing lists whose readers may be interested.

   soc.genealogy.misc, soc.genealogy.jewish, soc.genealogy.french,
   soc.genealogy.german, soc.genealogy.methods, soc.genealogy.misc,
   soc.genealogy.surnames, rec.heraldry, alt.scottish.clans,
   soc.history.moderated, [email protected]

Procedure:

Interested parties are encouraged to comment on this proposal in
news.groups.  Please post your comments *only* in news.groups.
After 21 days, if there appears to be a strong consensus in favor
of this proposal as it is written here, a Call For Votes (CFV)
will be posted, which will initiate the voting process;
otherwise, discussion will continue until a more refined proposal
can be prepared.

Again, please do *not* attempt to vote now.  The voting process
has not begun, and any attempted votes will be DISCARDED.

For more information on the newsgroup creation process, see
the documents entitled "How to Create a New Usenet
Newsgroup" and "Usenet Newsgroup Creation Companion" by
David Lawrence <[email protected]>, posted regularly to
