Tioga Co. Mailing Lists

Not intended for placing QUERIES or LISTING SURNAMES.

To place a QUERY for your family name or information or place a surname, backout of here and go directly to those QUERY and SURNAME web pages and read about the means of submitting to allow your information to be seen by thousands of searchers per year.

We had mailing lists for Tioga & Adjacent Counties, compliments of Rootsweb, but they were discontinued in March 2020. These have been replaced by discussion groups, details below. However, the mailing list archives are still available for review and those two are mentioned below.


There are two lists that involve Tioga Co.

1. NYTIOGA-L just deals with Tioga Co.

2. NYFingerLakes-L is devoted to genealogical research in Cayuga, Livingston, Schuyler, Seneca, Tompkins, Tioga, Wayne and Yates counties.

If you'd like to discuss Tioga County resources, your experiences growing up in Tioga and adjacent counties, or any other genealogically-related topics [loosely defined by the listmaster] concerning these counties, please subscribe following the simple instructions here.

If you're new to mailing lists and you're saying, "huh???", a mailing list is a group of people who send a message which goes to the whole group, maybe less than a dozen people or a few dozen at most. Sort of like having a giant party-line telephone. It's an on-going discussion and anyone is welcome to join in. 'Subscribing' gets you on the list so you receive the mail from the group and can write to the group. If you don't like it, or need to take a break, you can unsubscribe just as easily. So give it a try!

Participation is limited to subscribers.
