Lay Family Genealogical Association, Inc.

Lay of the Land (LOL) Newsletter

Lay of the Land
is LFGA's quarterly newsletter - dedicated to encouraging and preserving research on the history and genealogy of all Lay, Ley, Loy, Leigh, Leh, etc. families. A Lay of the Land newsletter subscription is included with an LFGA membership.


In the past, the newsletter was produced in hard (paper) copy and was mailed to all LFGA members and to some genealogical libraries. As of late 2010, the newsletter became an electronic newsletter and is emailed to LFGA members who have email. Those who don't have email continue to receive printed copies.

We encourage all our members to submit articles and other material for publishing in our newsletter, no matter how short or how long its length! Please contact our editor and publisher:
