One thought on “Did You Hear? Even More Newspaper Articles Put Online!

  1. Hello, Tom!

    I just thought that I would let you know how invaluable GenealogyBank has been to me in my job as Historian of The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral on Mott and Prince Streets in lower Manhattan.

    Most of the burial records for the churchyard cemetery and subterranean mortuary crypts below the church were lost many years ago, leaving us with a lot of questions as to the identities of those who are buried within the grounds of this wonderful historical and religious edifice.

    Using GenealogyBank’s Historical Newspaper collections has given me the opportunity to learn so much about the lives of the Founders of the Roman Catholic Church in New York; in both the lay as well as the clerical communities.

    Great work, GenealogyBank! Bravo!
