Several years of doing long-distance genealogy have moved me to create this group of pages.
WEB SITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Most of my ancestors immigrated to Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan between 1830 and 1870.
19th century Queens, a chaotic jumble of old towns swallowed up by the behemoth
City of New York in 1898, was the most laborious to research of the three.
Having collected my research information piecemeal
during my all-too rare trips from Boston to New York City,
I felt the Queens material begged better organization.
Even post-consolidation, there are enough differences to justify
isolating Queens from the other boroughs.
This site, an after-hours project, is my attempt to share my research notes with others.
Several areas are unfinished.
I welcome any comments, suggestions or corrections.
