Living History/Reenactor
Forum and Mailing Lists

What these lists are, is simply subscribed "news groups." Once you subscribe, they mail you a copy of every message sent in, then when you reply, everyone get's a copy of your message. There are reenactors and people interested in learning about or getting into reenacting all over the globe. Whether you live in the US in Pennsylvania, in Europe, these mailing lists bring you directly to the news and information you're looking for. They're a good way to keep "in the loop" in regards to reenacting -- however, subscribe with care, as I'm told some of the Civil War lists get hundreds (??) of posts per day. A good way to do it, is to subscribe as a "digest", meaning you will get one message a day with all that day's messages in that one message -- easier to keep up with.

Yes, we have a lot of ww2 lists, however that is because it is our specialty, not a prejudice -- if you have/know of a good reenacting list, please let us know so that we may link it.

reenactor.Net's Online Living History Forums

I've wanted to do Forums for awhile now, but it was either too much coding, or I would have to use someone else's system (i.e. ezboard or something -- meaning we had no control over how it was run) or just whatever . I am happy to say I've found something that set up well and is expandable. There is very little there yet, but there will be soon. And, if you're signed up for one time period, you're a member inthem all. This works well if you do more than one time period.

So anyway, go here: and sign up. And yeah, ya need to post for there to be stuff there.
Hope you like it... Marsh

P.S. look for more changes at r.Net coming up to make it easier and better for you, the reenactor.
