This information was not written by me, and while I believe it's accurate, I'm not in a position to represent the claim, particularly the detailed family names. The part about Rochester having the largest density of immigrants tracing their roots back to Drosopigi, Florina (Greece), is something that I'm certain is true, but haven't been able to find a source for. I was simply trying to remove it from the Drosopigi, Florina article, in a way that would be traceable and would leave it up to the original author to defend (if he/she were interested). I had provided a few days notice that I would do something about this in the discussion page for Drosopigi, Florina. I'll try, at some point, to get the original author to step in. drosopigi (talk) 21:24, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
