To expand on James's idea, the best way to do this would be to create an Alert list which takes an items url, the title and change type and set a daily/weekly alert on that.

On all your other lists create a simple workflow on change/create/delete that adds an item to the Alert list you created and assigns the appropriate information ( url, title, change type etc) to that list item.

You will then receive only one email alert.


You could trigger the alert from within a workflow that is attached to a content type which is associated to more than one list.


Create a search on your target set of lists and set the alert on that search on search results page.
