IRISH-AMERICAN OBITUARIES

"Where in Ireland did they come from?"

 


 Finding the place in Ireland where our ancestors lived prior

to their journey to the New World has always been a
challenging task. Very often they did not leave us many
clues to work with, and this has been a source of frustration
to many a genealogical researcher with roots back in Ireland.
This dilemma has resulted in many different methods by
which we might gain some insight as to the place of origin
of our ancestors.


The Emigrant Bank records, Gravestone

inscriptions, and sometimes Will & Probate records can give
us good clues as to their birthplaces. Naturalization papers
seldom have much useful information, especially if the
person came here in Famine Times, or any time prior to 1906.
Still, there is a dearth of information for us to work with.


I have found a marvelous source of Obituaries and

Death Notices in several New York City newspapers which
catered to the burgeoning community of Irish-Americans
in this City and the Nation.


I have gathered some of these notices and I will be posting

them at this site as time permits. I have hundreds more to
post, and many more yet to gather. The papers also have
a wealth of advertisements placed by Irish-American
businessmen....In time I will post some of these, too.


So, take a look at what I have here, and keep in mind that

while the folks listed here might not be your ancestors,
the Irish generally had large families, so some siblings of
your folks might be listed here---who knows?
