NEW YORK HISTORY & GENEALOGY: CROOKED LAKE REVIEW






day during my many web surfing episodes I discovered the Crooked Lake Review (http://www.crookedlakereview.com). Its purpose is to cover the local history of Conhocton, Canisteo, Tioga, Chemung and Genesee river valleys, and for the Finger Lakes and Lake Ontario regions of New York State. (1)  There are also articles on genealogy. The marvelous thing about the Crooked Lake Review is that the articles published in the Review between May 1988 and July 2008 are all online, and articles after July 2008 can be accessed at The Crooked Lake Review Blog (http://crookedlakereview.blogspot.com). Free is good. Free in the comfort of your home is even better.

To my knowledge my ancestors were not residents of any of the above-mentioned counties but nevertheless I have found numerous articles of interest on this website.  Here’s a sampling of the goodies that await:


Palmer, Richard, “The Cherry Valley Turnpike,” Crooked Lake Review, Spring 2005. (http://www.crookedlakereview.com/articles/101_135/135spring2005/135palmer.html: accessed September 6, 2012).
This article discusses the migration of pioneers from New England into upstate New York--taverns and stagecoaches, the War of 1812, highways and railroads, as well as specific references to different people. You might get lucky and find an ancestor.
