We are also in the process of updating all the Counties of New York, ones that are many years out of date will be unlinked on the County Page and new counties added in their place.  There will still be directions to the old pages, because the owner hasn't removed them or updated, and the Host site will not remove the pages even if there isn't information there.  Please check back often as we are working as fast as our fingers can type!!
