"Landing in NYC from Ireland"
WELCOME to the New York (NY-IRISH-L) Discussion List. This is a discussion area for anyone who has an interest in the Genealogy, History, Culture or anything related to the Irish immigration to New York. This list is for the whole state of New York, including of course, New York City where most of the Irish immigrants first stepped off the boat. If your ancestor lived or even just passed through New York, they have a special type of culture. The fun part of the list is figuring our what part or our traditions originated in Ireland or originated from New York. Because of the many different immigrants all living in poor neighborhoods when they first came over, many of our traditions are a result of the many nationalities living together. This list will be a place where we discuss those traditions that include holidays, recipes, music, weddings, births, funerals/wakes, etc. Hopefully, in our discourse we will find where the tradition started and which are pure Irish, which are NY Irish or which are just New York.
Please note: This list is set up so that all replies automatically go back to the list. This is done because much of the information posted in the replies is also helpful to others on the list.
If you wish to reply privately to someone, just copy and paste that persons address in the "To:" section of the message composition.
