Not so fast Danny.  A computer just might have one up on you.
 
According to HOLLIS (the early 1990s version) and Sergei Arutiunov:
 
Finnic
  Baltic (western)
    Finnish
    Estonian
    Karelian
    Ingrian
    Vote
  Permian (eastern)
     Komi-Zyrian
     Komi-Perian
     Udmurt
   Volgaic (southern)
      Mordvian
      Mari
    Lapp/Saami (northern)
Ugric
  Hungarian
  Mansi
  Khanty
 
Thus we have the Finno Ugric subfamily of the Uralic family.  Hope you concur.

Aw jeez... one more correction I need to make for Finnic:
 
Finnic
  Baltic (Finnish, Estonian, Karelian)
  Volga (Mari, Mordvin)
 
There may be a third sub-branch of this.
 
Now I'm pretty much satisfied.
  Uralic-Yukaghir
    Finno-Ugric
      Finnic (Finnish, Estonian, Karelian etc.)
      Ugric (Hungarian, Ostyak, Mansi)
      S├ími (or Lappish)
