since Sept 21, 1996 and features many Civil War files,
and an extensive postcards, and photo area. In this
month of remembrance, be sure to stop by and visit
it! It also received the 1997 Best Veteran/Military

and military servicepersons, and United States military history...

Please help me welcome our newest coordinator:

Joanne Gruber Abby <ajabby@norfolk.infi.net>
who is now hosting Nassau and Suffolk counties!

and Maureen Higgins Seifert, is the new coordinator
for Niagara County! Thanks to Chris Andrle for getting
Niagara up and online for many months.

This leaves just a few orphan counties without hosts,

Cortland (page up, no host)
Genesee (page up, no host)
Putnam (page up, no host)
Broome (host, but no page yet)

Wouldn't it be great to be at 100% at the end of
our first year (by June 1, 1997) ??

If you would like to volunteer to help with one of these
pages contact Kim Harris Myers <estral@vivanet.com>

NY State Update:

We have added some more researchers to the Governors page,
reinstated the Family Reunions page, which has had 600+ visitors
this month alone. You can have your family reunion (with a NY
connection) posted here.

I can't begin to tell you all the updates to the individual
county sites, so I would advise everyone to stop by

favorite county from there, or any of the pages on the NY site.
