NYFingerLakes-L information and link page

NYFingerLakes-L is a discussion list for researching Cayuga, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Tioga, Tompkins, Wayne and Yates Counties. While the list is primarily a genealogical research tool, discussions also include lore and memories of the Finger Lakes area.

List subscribers are affectionately referred to as "FLakes" - an abbreviated version of the list name and not in any way a reflection on our ancestors or our mental capacities.
