This is a delightful surprise to find the guestbook and board. I am a family genealogist doing research on the Brewer, Griswold, Stull and Kinyon family members who lived in Elmira and the surrounding areas of Tri-County. There are family members buried in Southport and also, in Riverside Cemetery. The Ancestors known are Abraham and Eunice Griswold Brewer, Elijah and Margaret Kinyon Brewer and their families.

Hello. Am Searching for long lost descendants of the Rorick Family. My Grandmother was one of 7 children (Cora Rorick b.1891) and daughter of Harvey & Stella Rorick.
The old Rorick's Glen was the families contribution to popular entertainment in the late 1800's. My Grandmother's family moved to Williamsport PA in the late 1890's. If you are or know of some of the family, please contact me. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
PS. a great website!

Hello everyone,

Irene P. and Kathie Burke, I remember you both. Irene, you and I used to walk home together from Booth. You lived on Windsor and I on W. Water.

I have not been in Elmira since 1993, but I have such fond and wistful memories... Love the photo albums I find here.

I am trying to locate Lee Whittle also EFA Class of 1973. Last I knew she lived in Alexandria, VA, but that was 13 years ago. Can't remember her married name.

Dear Fellow Elmirans,
I was in Elmira this past Wednesday. What an experience to be there. It was bitter sweet. First of all it was great to see that Elmira seems to be doing better than the last time I was there, ten years ago. The homes seemed better kept, and then there was the boat launch on Grove Street and Winsor Ave that was new. It was sad,however, to see the downtown area so depressed, and I was surprised that the M & M closed early, truly missed eating those hot dogs with chili. I was happy to see how developed business is in Big Flats. That was a good sign.
Of course it was painful because most of my loved ones are now resting in peace in Woodlawn, but it was comforting to be able to visit their gravesites and say a prayer. I missed seeing people I knew. The only person I saw was a former neighbor on Winsor Ave. Thank God for her.
I surely would love hearing from anyone that remembers me from my childhood and youth. I graduated from EFA in 1971 and prior to that attended Booth Junior High, and Hoffman Elementary School.
Anyway, in closing I want to say it was good, although sad, to get a chance to see the place I once called home. I send my best regards and love to all. With affection and fondness for my hometown,
PS Just curious, why has no one changed the picture of the week ? Hope all is well.

I do tend to miss Elmira of course i miss the green grass, the trees especially in the fall and oh i so miss the river and the creeks. It is totally different living in a bigger city one that especially bordering another country like Mexico which is only a walk away I graduated from EFA in 1993 and guess we never had a 10 yr reunion but anyway i have 3 children now I work on an Army Post and I love it anyway VALUE THE CITY i now see its a small city compared to others but it has its BEAUTY and should not be taken for granted.....

Wow, what a step back in time. These photo albums are amazing. It is really neat to be able to show my children the area in which I spent my early childhood years.
